Reagan students have great time at construction build off

On April 9, the Reagan High School construction program participated in the first ever Construction Career Day. The Construction Career Day was held at the Freeman Coliseum's Expo Center and involved many local builders, schools, and businesses. They provided activities and prizes for the students who attended the event. The event was intended to provide students with opportunities to become familiar with careers in the various fields of construction and also allowed the students to learn about new trends in construction.

At the Construction Career Day, a build-off took place between teams from several of the area high school construction programs. The teams were given the challenge of building a small bathroom that was properly plumbed, framed, and wired. They had a timeframe of six hours to complete the challenge. The Rattlers, who were proudly sponsored by Lowe's, placed third overall in the competition.

The four-man team worked diligently together as a solid unit as they problem solved and constructed of each the components to their best ability. DeWalt was a major contributor in the Construction Career Day event and donated tools to the top three winning teams. Each of the winning Rattlers took home a battery-operated drill as the reward for their efforts in the competition.

We would like to congratulate Team Reagan for the diligence, commitment and cooperation they showed one another throughout the preparation and competition season.
