At the State Department of Education board meeting on June 13, Herbert Hoover High School & Carver Career Center simulated workplace students were recognized for designed and building the State Board’s new boardroom table.

The table was designed and built by HHHS students in ‘The Shop’ – a simulated workplace focused on cabinetmaking. During the 2017-2018 school year, these students made 3 chests of drawers, 2 full sized sets of kitchen cabinets, 8 picnic tables and 2 serving tables. The State Dept. of Education conference table is a "U" shaped table, with the 2 sides measuring 22 feet 6 inches long and the connecting table being 24 feet long. HHHS subcontracted with Carver Career Center’s “Blueprint Brothers," "In With the Old Out with the New," & "Kanawha Valley Welding” for the State Seal. A group of students from Mingo Central designed the wall wraps that are pictured.
