Mukilteo School District workers make desks for students

When some Mukilteo School District high school staff members heard that some students didn’t have a place to learn and study at home, they took matters into their own hands.

Career and Technical Education (CTE) teachers Colin Wagner of Mariner High School and Myola Shanholtzer of Kamiak spearheaded a project to help students who needed a work space at home. Support staff Edward Bustos, Shelle Brihn, Rachel Johnson, Babby Skowyra and Lamont Beckner assisted with the project.

The team used the CTE shop at each school to build about two dozen desks. Several staff members helped deliver the desks to the homes of students, along with extra school supplies.
