VIDEO: Students at Dudley High School are getting the unique opportunity to work on the construction of two new fire stations as summer interns.
“Opportunities don't come around like this very often, especially for high school students,” Principal Rodney Wilds said.
The Greensboro Fire Department received approval for the necessary funding to rebuild fire stations 7 and 56.
Samet Corporation is the construction manager for the project.
The company has worked with Guilford County Schools on school construction projects.
Given its existing relationship with the school system, it approached Wilds with the opportunity to give students hands-on experience through the upcoming fire station projects.
“Each student would be involved day to day with how the wiring goes in, how the piping goes in, and how the HVAC system is brought to the building and the cool air comes,” Samet Senior Project Diversity Manager Johnny Sigers said
