Teaching at Forest Park

We had over 20 people signed up for Continuing Education classes on LEED for Homes and Construction Site Safety Practices at FPCC in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis. The students pay a small fee for the series of classes which also includes instruction in framing, flooring, leadership and trim carpentry. Then the class members volunteer for a few days on the Habitat build sites and put their new training to the test. Maybe (and hopefully) some will enjoy the experience and pursue leadership roles with Habitat. Kent Lytle does an excellant job with the safety instruction and I serve up the LEED information.
