After spending 3 plus decades in the construction industry, I've finally landed my dream job-- teaching Residential Construction here at Wood River High School. I hold an Associate in Arts degree in Construction Technology, earned at the start of my career, and have had a long, successful run as a general contractor building custom homes right here in the Wood River Valley. I am excited to teach your child all phases of construction from rough carpentry right on through to cabinetmaking & finish woodworking. This course of study is very popular and relevant, as there is a skilled labor shortage not only locally, but nationally as well. This is truly a hands on program, where students learn by doing- we actually build real houses in the real world! Graduates of the program are qualified for immediate employment in the building trades, a great profession to be part of. I look forward to partnering with you in the education of your child!

Residential Construction Academy students received a boost recently from Black Rhino Tools and the Wood River Valley Building Contractors Association. The company provided new tools and winter jackets for the programs at Wood River and Carey High Schools. All seniors who graduate from the Construction Academy will receive new tools and a tool belt. Sue Woodyard, who helped coordinate the donation along with Ed Laswon and Jeff Smith, told the students, "These tools represent an investment in your future. After graduation, whether obtaining a job or going on to higher training or education, you will be equipped with important lifetime skills in construction."
