Students made cabinets for the main foyer at the MiLL training center.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- The Peyton Advanced AutoWoods Cabinet 6 class installed cabinets into the main foyer at the MiLL training center. These students have been measuring, creating, and making all the necessary adjustments all semester to make sure their cabinets are just right. Installation of the cabinets serves as the final exam for the class and gauge how much they learned throughout the semester. 

The students that were present to assemble the cabinets were high school graduating senior Bekah Davis, junior year students Chase Miller, Treyston Whaley, Isaac Hermes, Chandon Harris, and lastly sophomore Haylie Peterson. Under the guidance of their instructor, Peyton AutoWoods teacher Chet Miller, they were able to successfully install all the cabinets.

These students have come a long way since their last project for the foyer. In January 2017, the class installed a grand desk for the MiLL. It was the first manufacturing project to be placed at the MiLL that the students themselves created.

“It is incredibly exciting to see the progression that these students have made come to life through the addition of the cabinets,” said Carolyn Stephen, communications writer for the MiLL. “We are so proud to see how far they have come and hope to see more wonderful projects from them and all our other students.”
