job corp muhl 1MUHLENBERG COUNTY, Ky. (6/9/19) — Muhlenberg County Job Corps students got hands on experience at the Job Corp site recently as students and instructors revamped the grassy area between the administrative and recreational buildings.

The project was funded by the U.S. Department of Labor and fell under the heading of Career Technical Student Training. The task showcased the skills of both hard trades instructors and students, according to a MCJC spokesman.

Heavy Equipment Cluster Manager Nick Toomey and the heavy equipment trade department broke ground on the project March 19. The heavy equipment operator removed areas of old concrete sidewalks to accommodate the elevation of the ground alleviating drainage problems.

Next, 200 feet of drain tile was buried and the CDL trade class hauled in 30 dump trucks of dirt. The heavy equipment students leveled the dirt.

Henry Jarvis and Russell Moore from the maintenance crew completed the project with concrete work with 40 yards of concrete poured to provide traveling paths between the buildings. Instructor Charles Wiseman used students to complete the project.
