If a new program at Clinton High School is going to get off the ground, it seems a partnership with a local construction group is likely.
Habitat For Humanity of DeWitt County could be instrumental in getting a building trades program going at Clinton High School. Superintendent Curt Nettles says it appears there is the makings for a great relationship between the two.
One thing that makes the two great partners is the fact Clinton High School has plots available and Habitat is in need of space to build. Given the fact Habitat is a natural fit for what the program hopes to accomplish, he sees great things ahead for the two.
Early on, the program would be small but it would build up as the partnership grows. Nettles says there is still a lot of planning to be done but things seem to be very promising.
Nettles notes there are lots of great building trade programs in the area to model after but he comes back most often to the program at Lincoln High School.
