Groundbreaking Ceremony Held for 25th Student-Built House

September 13, 2022

North and South High School students, staff, and guests attended a Groundbreaking Ceremony for House Construction Project 2022 on Tuesday, September 13 at the construction site in the Stonebrook Crossing Subdivision on the southside of Sheboygan. Project 2022 is the 25th home that will be built by SASD students enrolled in Career & Technical Education classes from Sheboygan North and Sheboygan South High Schools.

The program included a welcome from Jason Duff, Academic and Career Planning Coordinator for the Sheboygan Area School District. Superintendent Seth Harvatine also spoke at the program, emphasizing how important it is for schools to prepare students for the future by offering real-world, hands-on learning experiences like this one. Pillar 1 of the Sheboygan Area School District Long Range Plan states: Upon Graduation, all students will be prepared to successfully take the next step in their self-defined career pathway. Experience gained in this House Construction class provides students with skills, experiences, and connections to pursue a career in construction trades.

Brian Sippel, from the North Central States Regional Council of Carpenters, also spoke at the program. Brian is a 1999 graduate of South High School who participated in the first-ever house construction project for the Sheboygan Area School District. He shared with the students how his experience in high school helped guide his career path.

This year’s house was designed by South High School senior Lucas Jowett. His design was selected last spring from the plans drawn by all students enrolled in our Project Lead the Way Civil Engineering and Architecture class.

This is the seventh home built under the direction of instructor and project manager Ted Schermetzler.

This will be the second student-built home in the new Stonebrook Crossing subdivision by Werner Homes.
