NTC alternative high school students weld and donate bike racks to Monk Botanical Gardens
For the City Times
WAUSAU – Northcentral Technical College (NTC) Alternative High School Students participated in a four-week welding experience that resulted in three beautifully constructed, unique bike racks that will be donated to Monk Botanical Gardens. The racks have enough space for 12 bikes and provide garden-goers a place to park their bikes before entering the Gardens.
Community members are invited to attend the installation of these bike racks on Thursday, May 12th from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. to meet these local students and recognize their hard work. Installation will start around 1:30 p.m.
The NTC Welding Department partnered with the Alternative High School to teach a group of students welding techniques, laser operation, metal forming, and fabrication. J and D Tube Benders helped with the bending and materials, and shop supplies were donated by the Welding Department.
The NTC Alternative High School serves students at risk of not completing high school in a traditional setting. Classes are available in Antigo, Medford, Merrill, Phillips, Spencer, and Wausau. More information about the program can be found at ntc.edu/about/locations-facilities/alternative-high-school.
