It looks awesome! That’s what Delcastle students said when they entered their Tech Drafting classroom at the beginning of this school year. More than 20 companies and vendors, led by former Delcastle Tech Drafting graduate and current interior designer Shakira Hunt, volunteered their time and materials this summer to redesign Delcastle’s Tech Drafting lab as part of a Green Apple Service Project. Members of the local International Interior Design Association, PA/NJ/DE Chapter sponsored the project, which is part of an international program that encourages community stakeholders to help transform schools into more productive learning environments through local service events. The redesign of the school’s Tech Drafting learning space is meant to better promote creativity and mimic the work environment that students will encounter as they continue their careers in the design, architecture, and construction fields.

“It’s a real testament to the high regard these companies have for our program to invest this much time and effort to benefit our tech students,” said Tech Drafting teacher Marty Baeriswyl. The classroom will be dedicated on Sept. 23. Participating companies include Shaw Contract, Mitchell Associates, EDiS Company, Tandus Centiva, Ricciardi Bros, Master Acoustical, Inc., Contract Environments, J&J Flooring Group, Phillips, N.A., Connolly Flooring, Interface, Designtex, Wilsonart, Penn Lighting Associates, Fessenden Hall, Inc., Turning Point, Spartan Surfaces, Union Wholesale Company, Advanced Office Environments, Benjamin Moore, and Tevebaugh Associates.
