ROISD’s CTE Dedicates Gazebo Built by Students

Red Oak High School Construction Tech students and teacher Doug Wuerch have been busy this spring building and installing a gazebo on the back porch of the ESC, and today a dedication was held for the structure. Guests included students and their families, teachers, administration, and Board Members.

Mr. Wuerch explained the project and formal permitting process while students shared some of the project challenges and detailed steps for construction and installation. For instance, the concrete slab slopes, thus the beams had to be different lengths for the top to be level. The student-designed project had unique angles that required teamwork to install properly. And a wide variety of tools were used to modify the fit to be just right.

CTE Director Jennifer Jeter presented a plaque that will be placed on the structure detailing the students on the build and the dedication to the District for support of construction education.

After the dedication, guests enjoyed lunch cooked by the FFA on the new cooking trailer in the ESC backyard.
