Students in Masonry 3 class at Central Cabarrus High School built a sign at Midland Fire Department Station 2. The class also built a sign at the main Midland Fire Department last month.

Todd Hartsell, who teaches the class, said students learn basic skills in the masonry lab at the school and apply what they learn through community service projects.

The class has also built the foundation for a Habitat for Humanity House, a backstop for the softball field at Hickory Ridge High School, a brick mailbox for J.N. Fries Magnet Middle School and a bell tower for a local church. Hartsell said three of his students will be working for masonry contractors this summer.

“By doing stuff like this, they can see if they like it,” Hartsell said.
