The caboose in downtown Ironton is getting a fresh face.

On Friday, students from the auto collision program could be found on ladders around the structure, working to repaint it as part of their senior project.

They were but the latest of series of students from the school to work on the project.

Earlier, mathematics students visited the location to measure the square footage for painting, while carpentry students constructed a deck and replaced the inside flooring.

Later, science classes will write papers on chemicals in the paint, and history and English classes will have assignments related to the project.

In recent years, the school’s Project Lead the Way program designed and built a new ticket booth for Symmes Valley High, while Ironton students enrolled through PLTW and Collins spent this summer testing water quality around the city.

In addition to preparing students for the career fields of tomorrow, CCTC and PLTW have been a huge community asset by working on projects like these and we commend them for all their hard work.
