Lowe’s donates tools to students
ST. CLAIRSVILLE – Students in the Construction Trades program at the Belmont Career Center were recipients of a generous donation of tools and supplies from Lowe’s in St. Clairsville.
Lowe’s, through its “Generation T” movement, gave each student a starter tool belt complete with tools, as well as supplies to support COVID19 efforts in the classroom.
In 2019, Lowe’s introduced “Generation T,” a digital-first movement aimed at rebuilding the skilled trades by changing people’s perception. Using unique digital storytelling, compelling social media and an innovative online jobs platform to help connect prospects and businesses, Lowe’s is working to change the way people see and feel about the skilled trades.
The Construction Trades program is designed for 9th grade students who would like to acquire the beginning knowledge and basic skills of the construction industry.
Students complete courses in construction technology and principles of wood construction. Students learn basic safety, construction math, hand and power tool use, blueprint reading and material handling.
