Groups of students in career and technical education classes at McKay and South Salem high schools showed months of hard work Thursday at an open house for their biggest project, reported the Salem Statesman Journal newspaper.  

 

The students worked together every weekday under the guidance of industry professionals to build a three bedroom, two bath home while learning valuable skills that readied them for the workplace. The house is located at 529 24th Street NE in Salem.

 

"The house, the first to be built as part of the programs, was done in partnership with nonprofit Con-Tech Inc., which assisted with fundraising, managing finances, providing labor and materials and selling the house once the class finished it," the paper reported.
