District receives major gift from local contractor

Strawn Contracting logoWhen this year’s kindergarten class enrolls in Building Trades at the Hutchinson Career and Technical Education Academy for their senior year in 2029-30, they’ll know where that year’s home is being built.

It will be built in the same addition as where the 2017-18 home was built.

Thanks to a generous gift from a local contractor, Jim Strawn of Strawn Contracting, the district will be able to construct the next 12 years of Building Trades homes in the Oxford Point addition, said Travis Riebel, HCTEA director. Strawn has donated five lots to the district, which the Board of Education accepted and formally thanked the contractor on Monday.
