The Connellsville Area Career and Technical Center is providing the city of Connellsville and other local entities with a valuable resource — the center's students.

The center, which is part of the Connellsville Area School District, provides students a trade-based education. As part of the curriculum, students oftentimes have the opportunity to help with projects in the community.

This program benefits not only the students, who learn a trade, but also the city and other organizations, which over the years have been well served by the students' skills.

Most recently, students have been visiting the Connellsville Community Center and the Carnegie Free Library, where they are assisting with various projects. In past years, the students have completed projects for the parks in the city as well as helped the Yough River Trail Council — just to name a few organizations.

What a fine resource these students are to our community. And we commend them on their outstanding dedication and enthusiasm.

Cooperative programs such as this one help local organizations realize projects that they otherwise wouldn't be able to complete on their own. And that benefits everyone.
