Two area students were awarded scholarships last week after participating in the Door Kewaunee Business and Education Partnership (DKBEP) High School Home Construction Program.
On Wednesday the organization held an open house and dedication ceremony for its sixth successful home-building project where the awards were announced.
Sevastopol High School junior Nick Cater (above) took home the Miles Zastrow Excellence in Building and Achievement Award and the $1,000 scholarship that goes with it for his future endeavors in a trades field. Cater plans to follow in his father’s footsteps when he graduates next spring and pursue a plumbing apprentice license to work in the family business, Cater Plumbing.
Southern Door High School senior Trevor Marin (above) received a $1,000 scholarship from the Door County Homebuilders Association (DCHBA).
Both Marin and Cater participated in the home construction program with nine other area students. Each year the DCHBA, Northeast Wisconsin Technical College and the DKBEP join forces to build a home during the school year with full participation from high school students.
