 Sundt Construction donated $5,000 this week to the Construction Technologies program at the East Valley Institute of Technology. Instructor Billy DeWitt said the donation will be used to purchase materials for the program.

 Michael Yeager, Daniel Haag and Sean Ray of Sundt Construction presented the $5,000 check to DeWitt, Principal Mark Yockus, Assistant Superintendent David Schapira and Superintendent Dr. Sally Downey.

 Downey said EVIT is fortunate to have such support from the business community. “Our business partners make it possible for us to provide quality career and technical education,” she said.

 The Construction program has also received significant support this year from the Home Builders Association of Central Arizona and the Association of the Wall & Ceiling Contractors of Arizona.

 Students in Construction Technologies learn hands-on skills in various disciplines of commercial and residential construction including electrical wiring, plumbing, masonry, framing, roofing, drywall and finish work. They also learn about safety, the use of hand and power tools, blueprint reading, estimating and construction industry operations.

 An industry-driven curriculum and internships prepare them for professional credentials, jobs, apprenticeships, community college and four-year colleges and universities.
