We receive a thank you letter from the Township High School District 211 for Participating in their Career Expo. This is a reprint of that letter.

March 13, 2019
Dear D211 Career Expo Company,
Thank you for participating in the second annual district 211 Career Expo. As you may have noticed, our Career Expo is sectioned by the 16 nationally recognized college major and career clusters. With your participation we are able to help our high school students experience a broad-based career exploration continuum.

By the time students leave high school, we want them to have explored multiple clusters via company visits, interactions with professionals, clubs and coursework. This exploration continues with a high school internship allowing for more in-depth exposure. Providing opportunities, such as you have done during this Career Expo, allows students to graduate from high school with experiences to assist them in their future career related decisions.

Local Homebuilding Associations Raise More Then $10,000. For District 211’s Building Trades Program.

Each year, students enrolled in the Building Trades Program design and construct a home in the northwest suburbs. From blueprints to completion, the process usually takes two years. Homes are sold at market value. Five high schools participate—Conant, Fremd, Hoffman Estates, Palatine, and Schaumburg. The Residential Construction Employers Council (RCEC) along with the Residential Home Builders Alliance (RHBA) raised more than $10,000 in donations for High School District 211’s Building Trades Program.


Here is the 2019 home that was built by the students.

Here, students show off some of the apparel they received, which included $6,500 worth of Carhartt jackets donated from RCEC along with RB Construction, GW Thiel, Monarch Construction, and Advantage Contractor Solutions. RHBA provided 100 pairs of safety gloves. The Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters made a monetary donation of $2,500 while Procaccio Painting and Drywall, Parksite and Mr. and Mrs. Len Strahanoski also made monetary donations. Other gifts included safety shirts, sweatshirts, tape measures, safety gloves, and gift cards for food and groceries

Chris Gunsteen, construction instructor at Palatine High School, said “District 211 offers students an authentic hands-on experience that exposes them to all aspects of home building, including working outside year around. These donations will go a long way in providing our students with the basic necessities that more often than not students are showing up to class without.”
