(Riverton, Wyo.) – Students from Wind River and Riverton High Schools who participated in the Green Construction Academy this past school semester were graduated receiving tool belts and a pay check for their work. Students in Riverton worked on a duplex project across from the new Riverton Fire Department Station on South Broadway and Wind River students rehabbed a former modular classroom adjacent to their school in Pavillion. Earlier GCA students in Thermopolis had their graduation ceremony after constructing three storage barns and an exhibit.
The students who successfully completed the program also received their OSHA Safety Certification Card and a First Aid CPR card in addition to their graduation certificate.
The ceremony, held on the site of the Riverton project, included a lunch for the students, their families and friends.
Students who graduated are: Dustin Woods, Eddie Shells, Norman Bitsie, Bradley Malek, Dustin Hart, Darwin Enos, Shane Spoonhunter, C.J. Watterson, James Finley, Drew Koenig, Joe Spear, Justin Pederson, Colton Stiffarm, Chance Stiffarm, Andrew Murdock and Cara Longtine.
