Over the past several years, Boxelder Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center has completed various service projects for the Sturgis Community Center in Sturgis, SD, from painting interiors throughout most of the building to constructing a sauna. Currently, students in the Painting program are repairing the ceiling which was recently victim to water damage.
“We really appreciate our partnership with Boxelder Job Corps Center,” said Rod Heikes, Community Center Director. “The service these students provide us really makes an impact, and is of immense benefit to our facility and the community of Sturgis.”
Student Marieann R. enjoys giving back to her community. “I’ve learned so many skills while working on this project, but it’s also really neat to be serving the community.”
The project involves sanding areas of the wood ceiling that have been damaged by water, covering with a primer and finishing the project with applying a stain. “We’ve always enjoyed working on this facility,” said Tim Raftery, Painting Instructor. “Our students always walk away proud of what they’ve accomplished.”
