Photos and Story by

On Feb. 21 the Interior Design and Building Construction Technology programs hosted the local chapter of the National Kitchen and Bath Association’s monthly meeting. The event was coordinated to align students with potential internships with designers, suppliers and showrooms.

“It was a great evening and really furthered the program’s process of NKBA accreditation,” said Amanda Ferroggiaro, Interior Design instructor.

Also, on March 8, students from the Kitchen and Bath class finished their service learning work with a presentation to the coordinator and staff of the Daybreak Homeless Shelter. Students presented ideas for color, new space plans, bathroom renovation and overall better use of space and the creation of a more optimistic interior.

“Joe Sixta of Human Solutions was very impressed with all of the student enthusiasm and support for what interior design can do for a space,” said Ferroggiaro.
