Chamber commissions Hoover High construction technologies students to build little green and red holiday structure.
Jolly Old St. Nick now has a North Canton home to call his own – one carefully crafted by Hoover High School construction technologies students commissioned for the important task by the North Canton Area Chamber of Commerce. The 10th through 12th grade students toiled in their school workshop like elves in order to complete the Santa House in a very short time frame leading up to this Sunday’s big Christmas Sing and Tree Lighting.
