Groundbreaking ceremonies for the Lawrence County High School Career and Technical Center.

Students, Lawrence County Board of Education members, Lawrenceburg citizens and Masonry Institute of Tennessee (MIT) members celebrated the groundbreaking of the new Lawrence County High School Career and Technical Center. Held on Oct. 19, the groundbreaking featured shoveling sand into a new mixer, instead of the traditional shovel and dirt groundbreaking. The unprecedented ceremony marked the beginning of masonry's commitment to not only building solid facilities, but also solid futures for Tennessee students.

The new masonry building symbolizes the growing need for skilled masonry craftspersons and Tennessee's rich masonry construction history. The MIT supports high school programs and apprenticeship programs across the state and is proud to announce masonry instructor, Steve Cheatwood, and his students as its newest partner.

The construction of the new facility would not be possible without the generous donations of MIT members. Also, 4,200 blocks, 25,000 bricks, 300 bags of mortar, door frames, shovels, hard hats and doors were donated by Alley-Cassetty Brick, Brown's Concrete Products, Capitol City Scaffolding and Equipment, Enco Materials, General Shale Brick, LoJac Materials, Red River Concrete Products, Sequatchie Concrete Service and Southland Brick and Block.
