The Four Rivers Career Center hosted its Pathways to Construction Day (Construction Careers Day) outside of the Nix Cafeteria at Washington High School on Thursday, Oct. 20.
Representatives from St. Louis area construction companies and unions were on hand to give information and demonstrations about their industry.
WHS students visited the presentations during their respective math classes.
Part of the purpose was for the students to learn how math and other skills play an important role in the construction industry.

Four Rivers Career Center students recently completed a year-long project that will help local authorities and possibly save lives.
A number of students helped make a rollover simulator, which will be given to the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office.
The rollover simulator is a truck cab that spins on its own axis at 35 MPH to simulate a rollover crash. Cloth dummies are placed inside the simulator and are used to illustrate the effects of a rollover crash on unrestrained occupants.
“It was a collaborative effort between a lot of different students and programs here,” said Collision Repair Instructor Robert Schulze. “We started working on it last October and into November and had it almost completed by the end of the school year. We finished it up this year, so the entire project took about a year to complete. The students did an excellent job.”
Working on the project were FRCC students from the machine tool, welding, automotive technology, automotive collision repair and graphic communications programs.

Additionally, Washington High School Navy Jr. ROTC Cadets and Lt. Tim Raines were recognized by the Rotary. Raines and his Cadets shared information to the Rotary Club about their program.
Pictured below are Raines, his Cadets and Rotary Club President Dennis Kramme.
Cadets on hand were Gunnar Noud, Tyler Ramsey, Kolton Harrison, Logan Boni, Alexander Davis, Joseph Auzat and Ethan Strubberg.
The program also just had a cadet, Dane Brautigam, a 2016 WHS graduate, receive a Navy ROTC scholarship. The scholarship is worth up to $180,000 for college. He was accepted to attend Embry Riddle Aeronautical University with the Navy ROTC program.
Total scholarships awarded to date has been nearly $500,000. Total grants to date has been almost $26,000 for the NNDCC Washington program.

Arroyo spoke to the students on entrepreneurship, market research and business development. He also showd a slide show outlining his points during the presentation.
