Southeast High School shop students are getting into the spirit of Halloween by building a haunted house attraction.
“I’m a patient and I get sawed in half,” said Ava Lucas, Southeast High student.
“I’m actually the greeter. I’ll be the first person that you would see if you walked in into the haunted house,” said Duylan Bolen, Southeast High student.
The construction of the haunted house attraction gave the students hands-on learning.
“This is a way to get kids involved in their curriculum, it’s a way to take what they learn in the classroom and really apply it. It’s also a way to teach them about safety, advertising customer relations. It just ties into a lot of different things,” said Jeremy Smith. Instructor
Shop students say the construction is not a one-man job to complete.
“I think it was a lot of fun, it was serious obviously because we had to put it together. It was a lot of fun as well, we worked as a team,” said Bolen.
And for the money raised from guest, it will go to support a good cause.
“What we do with the proceeds that we raise here is. We’re able to compete in Jackson at the state competition for Skills USA. Last year we had a team to go all the way to nationals. This money just helps them do that. This money also helps them give back to the community. There is a lot of projects that we do that we’re able to use these proceeds to help out with,” said Smith.
