educational experiences of the
students in the Institute’s
Light Construction and Elec
trical/Electronics installation
Programs. It was felt that ,
students could be better
trained if allowed opportuni
ties for applying skills de
veloped through classroom
instruction. The most practi
cal means of achieving this
goal was in the actual
construction of homes by the
AMY Construction will
build a house each year in the
Tri-County area, thus afford
ing Mayland Tech students
the means by which they can
apply skills such as blueprint
reading, mechanical drawing,
construction planning, ma
sonry, carpentry, and electri
cal installation, to name a
few. Also, the pride of having
been an active participant in
such an accomplishment
helps in more firmly estab
lishing confidence in each
student’s ability.
House construction began
in October, 1975, when
Northwestern Bank of Bakers
ville approved a construction
loan. Six-tenths acres of land. •
was purchased on Carter’s
Ridge Road in the Red Oak
Hills Development of Spruce
Pine at which time building
suppliers in the Tri-County
area were given the opportu !
nity to bid on the material
needed for construction. Six
suppliers submitted low bids
and were awarded contracts.
Since construction began,
more than 95 students have
been assigned to the con
struction site at various stages
for specific learning experi
ences, each receiving approx
imately 20 hours of actual
on-the-site instruction and
training per week. Light
