CTC students help with storm clean-up

As part of their school’s community service agenda, students from the Ohio Valley CTC helped with storm debris cleanup at a local farm.

By Patricia Beech –

Students from the Farm Business, Ag Mechanics and Carpentry programs at the Ohio Valley Career and Technical Center recently partnered to help a local farmer clean up damage caused by the destructive March 1 storm that swept through Adams County.
Students arrived Monday, Mar. 6 at the Louiso farm on Unity Road near West Union where straight line winds had destroyed a large barn and created an extensive debris field.
Ag Business instructor Luke Rhonemus praised the students he accompanied to the Louisa farm.
“In our FFA chapter we take pride in helping people and being involved in the community, so our students jumped right in and got the work done,” Rhonemus said.
Chris Prebble, an Ag Business student who was part of a field clean up crew, says he was surprised by the extent of the damage. “To think that we were that close to it, and we weren’t even under a tornado lock down at school – it was really surprising.”

Students from the Ohio Valley Career and Technical Center pitch in to help the clean up at the Louiso farm after the destructive storms of March 1.

Ag Mechanic student Dodge Evans helped clean up debris from the barn which he described as “mangled”. “I’ve never seen that kind of storm damage,” he said. “It meant a lot to be able to go out there and help someone who was in trouble.”
Jason Vesey, Director of the CTC, praised the instructors and students who volunteered their time for the clean up.
“For one or two guys it would have been a tremendous job,” Vesey said. “But our instructors felt if they could put the strength of their departments behind the effort it would be a big help getting it cleaned up.”
As CTC Director Vesey has promoted a strong community service agenda providing students with opportunities to participate in life-enriching activities outside of the traditional classroom.
“It was a great opportunity for our students,” he says. “Community service is a big part of what we do here at the CTC – we believe our school and our students should always be actively involved in community service.”
