Career Center students win community service grant

Columbia Area Career Center students in the Geographic Information Science (GIS) program have won a $20,000 SkillsUSA/Lowe's 2015 community service grant. A self-sustaining watering system will capture rainwater from the roof of the building and will supply necessary water for the Culinary Arts garden. A rain garden will be created for water overflow and a new walkway on the north side of the building will be installed. GIS students chose this project to improve their school community.
