Many high schools around the nation have woodworking classes, but it's hard to find a school where a student can learn homebuilding skills. Sisters High School has such a program under the guidance of Tony Cosby, and last week the construction students were out at the Sisters Habitat for Humanity jobsite putting up the walls for future homeowner Becky Conner.

"It's a great opportunity. Other schools don't have this kind of program and I'm grateful we can learn these skills," Joseph Scholl said.

The house at the Village Meadows neighborhood is the sixth Habitat home to have the walls built by the construction students. The construction class is held in the fall each year and is open to students who have already taken beginning woodworking classes. Cosby gets the house plans from Habitat's Construction Manager Darleene Snider and the students then get to work. The wall-raising is the culmination of their hard work.

"The partnership with Tony and his students has been a great experience. So many hands are involved in helping families from Sisters," Snider said.

Cosby echoed those words and is looking forward to another wall-raising in 2018.
