Fifteen students in the College of Applied Science and Technology’s Construction Engineering Technology program joined eight Air Force Junior ROTC Cadets from Buchtel High School on Oct. 26 to help renovate the future home for StarkFresh’s community-led, non-profit supermarket and café project at 1317 Gonder Ave. SE in Canton. During the six-hour workday, the construction engineering students mentored the Junior Cadets on how to safely and skillfully complete their part of the renovation project.
