When Kathy Hrenko told members of the Longwood Rotary Club she needed assistance to build brackets and crate 45 hospital beds that are scheduled to be shipped to Tunisia, the superintendent of Unionville-Chadds Ford School district said he was pretty sure the students at the school’s technology and engineering department would be willing to help.
When Sanville pitched the idea to Neil Linkmeyer, head of the technology and engineering department at the school, the students were thrilled to be involved in a humanitarian project.
It took the students three days to build the brackets, and for many of them, the project as a first.
