Students at Cumberland-Perry AVTS are using their skills to honor veterans and serve the community this fall. According to an article on, more than two dozen carpentry students spent Veterans Day building a new pavilion at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center under the guidance of carpentry instructor Jody Snider. The Quonset-hut style structure was designed to fit into the military theme of the location. It will be used for a variety of activities, including picnicking and educational events. Previously, tents housed these activities in the summer, but the new structure will allow for a more permanent solution. The project is a partnership with the Army Heritage Center Foundation. In addition to the students’ volunteer labor, free design time was also donated by architects at R.S. Mowery.
