Job Corps Center -1The Pine Ridge Job Corps Center south of Chadron has done community projects in the Chadron area and across the Panhandle since it opened in 1965, and continues to add to its list of projects.

Last month, the center’s Painting Career Technical Trade class helped with three painting projects at Chadron High School: the business lab, a general classroom, and the resources room. The students prepared the walls for painting…scraping, and caulking them as well as fixing some minor drywall damage…masked all windows and doors, then applied fresh paint under the direction of their instructor, Jeremy Hinrichs.

Chadron High Principal Jerry Mack says the Job Corps student did a top-notch job at the school with everything professionally done…adding that “you couldn’t ask for anything more.”

Mack also says the Job Corps students were great to work with and he hopes the Chadron Public Schools can continue to utilize the center’s services long into the future.
