Through Academies, Park donates tiny house to veteran village

Park High School students donated a tiny house to the Veteran’s Outreach of Wisconsin for their tiny house community village for veterans. The house was built by students in Park High School’s Skills USA club, a partnership that gives students the opportunity to work on different projects and gain experience in technical and skills education.

Nearly fifty Park High School students had the opportunity to help build a tiny home for the non-profit, Veteran’s Outreach of Wisconsin. Three students who were most involved with the project were joined by Superintendent Dr. Haws, Racine Unified faculty, and Veteran’s Outreach director, Jeff Gustin, to celebrate completing construction.

Through the Academies of Racine, school district staff anticipate providing more programs like this tiny home project, which give high school students more opportunities to learn outside of the classroom and align their skills with hands-on experience.
