Lake Career and Technical Center offers courses that allow students to acquire experience that they can apply later in life when they enter the workforce. Building Trades is a class that does just that. LCTC has been known for building homes but this year students got the opportunity to build a building that will be used in the school's agricultural department.
Ryan Bearden led a crew of junior and senior students through the entire building process of a red-iron building. According to Camdenton R-III officials, Clark's Concrete earned the bid for the concrete on this project and allowed students to actually work with them when they laid the concrete.
Stanley Armstrong from A and C Construction also played a huge role in the construction of this latest project. Armstrong and his crew assisted and collaborated with Bearden and his students throughout the process.
The building will house livestock for the Animal Production class which is a part of the Agriculture Department at Lake Career and Technical Center.
