Sierra Nevada Job Corps Renovates Historic Site
Mentored by Instructor Jeff Wagner, Sierra Nevada Job Corps cement students renovated the historic Steamboat Springs Healing Center and Spa. The nonprofit hot springs and spa, named by none other than Mark Twain during his 1862-1863 stay on the Comstock, is one of the oldest businesses in Nevada. Cement students used the skills they have learned throughout the program to pour cement for new steps and walkways.
Sierra Nevada Job Corps Career Technical Training Supervisor Mark Cinkovich says,
“Working at Steamboat Hot Springs provides our students with the opportunity to apply their learned skills in a real-world setting. And now they can say they greatly improved a facility that has been designated as a state historical site.”
The Steamboat renovation is ongoing and will involve other Sierra Nevada Job Corps technical expertise throughout the summer of 2017.
