Rebecca Zemencik/Citizen-Standard Photo Hegins Township Supervisor Brad Carl worked with four Tri-Valley students who are enrolled in the masonry program at the Schuylkill Vo-Tech Center, on Thursday morning at Tri-Valley Community Pool. Cement was poured to replace an area that had to be dug up last year in order to repair a leak.

HEGINS – Four Tri-Valley students enrolled in the masonry program at Schuylkill Technology Center helped to cement a portion of the decking at the Tri-Valley Community Pool last Thursday morning.
The internship program allows students in the curriculum to go out and actually do work in their field of study in the workforce.
Hegins Township Supervisor Brad Carl arranged for the students to come out and help the township road crew complete the cement project at the pool.
“It’s a win-win situation for everyone involved,” said Timothy McGinley, Schuylkill Technology Center. “It gives the students the opportunity to do real jobs and have life experiences.”
