The Town Council of the Town of Franklin honored students at Tri-County Regional for their construction of a home on Beaver Court.
Town Administrator Jeffrey D. Nutting visited Tri-County on Tuesday, May 19, to present an Award of Excellence to the school's Carpentry, Electrical Wiring Technology, and Plumbing and Hydronic Heating programs.
The award, which is signed by Franklin Town Council Chairman Robert R. Vallee, recognizes the students for exhibiting the skillful application of their trade in building a three-bedroom, two-bathroom Ranch home on Beaver Court.
Tri-County, in partnership with the Franklin Municipal Housing Trust Fund, began the project in April 2014. The town paid for the materials in exchange for a home that meets affordable housing qualifications.
While the finishing touches must still be added to the home, Franklin officials wanted to honor the seniors who contributed to the project prior to graduation.
