It was the spring of 2018 when Kara Minor, a senior in Tim Bradford’s environmental class at Lincoln County High School, suggested that the class build another hunting house for the Matt Malone Memorial Chapter of Kids Hunting for a Cure.
“The class designed, built the floor, framed up the walls and installed the windows before the end of the semester stopped their work,” said Bradford.
Then in the fall of 2018, Bradford’s agriculture mechanics and agriculture power classes completed construction of the building. Students in Darrin Simms’ construction class installed the vinyl siding.
Rob Williams, Kara’s grandfather, donated his time one night to help install the metal roof, metal trim and caulk the windows prior to students painting the structure. Using different shades of camo paint, the students completed the building with a fresh coat of paint, layering it in different designs.
“These two ag classes have already started another hunting house for next October,” Bradford said. “The one has wheels for mobility and will also be handicapped accessible.
“A special thanks to Mr. Cole Smith for his continued support of students and Kids Hunting for a Cure in purchasing the hunting house on Oct. 26,” he said. The hunting house sold for $900, which will be matched, with proceeds going toward research aimed at developing cures for cancer and childhood diseases.
