Students clearing dirt to prepare for the brick pillars to be built.


Students in Coahoma Community Collegeís Brick and Block Masonry and Residential Carpentry programs are getting their hands dirty this week helping out with the construction of a privacy fence that will enclose the area directly behind the Presidentís House located on the southeastern edge of the schoolís campus.

The roughly 100 x 100 foot brick and wood fence will feature 30 brick pillars (each six feet tall) and feature 10 lights spread out on the tops of those pillars to illuminate the space and make it more functional for entertaining and hosting school-related events.

On Tuesday morning, the foundation layout for the fence was being completed with students calculating distance and constructing straight lines coming from the existing rear of the home using the Pythagorean Theorem (a≤+b≤ =c≤). The students are getting the opportunity for some real-world training right on campus.
