FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Fayetteville Public Schools received a donation from the Nabholz Corporation.
The company gave $20,000 worth of industry-standard tools to help develop the school system’s skilled trades curriculum.
The curriculum will train students interested in pursuing a career in the skilled trades while still in high school, particularly plumbers, electricians, carpenters, and general construction.
“Construction Technologies and skilled trades is actually growing in Northwest Arkansas because Northwest Arkansas is growing, and so we need to be able to provide a workforce and develop a workforce for that expanding market,” FHS Principal Jay Dostal said.
Some of the attendees at the event include Fayetteville Superintendent Dr. John L Colbert and school board President Nika Waitsman.
