A longtime relationship between TSP and the Hamlin School District has continued to grow along with enrollment, with the latest project propelling students toward their future.
Hamlin High School students now travel 30 minutes to Watertown, SD, to take Career Technical Education classes in fields such as health, electronics, woodworking, and welding at Lake Area Technical College. This makes it challenging to schedule classes at Hamlin High School since students essentially lose a class period a day.
The Hamlin School Board decided to offer CTE classes at home and expand the high school building also with a new gymnasium. TSP, which has worked with Hamlin on various projects and renovations since 1996, also worked with the school district as it looked to its future needs, going through different options for the elementary, middle school, and high school facilities.
The addition perfectly matches the original school building with the same split-face block. The new CTE building extends a classroom wing, and one existing classroom was turned into a commons area for students. Faculty ad administrators have expressed great enthusiasm about giving the students a place for study and fellowship.
The Hamlin School District has a tradition of allowing students to paint murals on interior walls. The addition was designed to give students a new canvas to express their creativity.
