Fox4 Highlights MCC Students Building Smart Home for Home Show

Fox4 recently aired a segment about the Metropolitan Community College students who are gaining hands-on experience in construction by building the KCHBA’s smart home for the 2020 Greater Kansas City Home & Lifestyle Show.

“The sound of power tools flows through the air, as 30 students representing every high school in the NKC School District work toward their associates degrees,” reporter Sean McDowell states.

“They hope to use those degrees in building maintenance and construction from Metropolitan Community College to enter into their chosen industry immediately after graduation.”

“There’s a good majority of them that could walk out of this lab and go get a job with a local remodeling company or construction company or apartment management company,” said Je-Anne’ Rueckert, MCC’s building maintenance coordinator.
