Hometown Hero: DISD Multiple Careers Magnet Center

Posted: Updated:

For 10 years, the students in Terry Stotts' construction technology class have made wooden rocking horses for the kids at the Ronald McDonald House, who are recovering from treatment or surgery.                 

Starting in October, Stotts' woodshop at the Multiple Careers Magnet Center becomes Santa's workshop.

Stotts' students, who are 15 to 19 years old and special education students, do all of the work on each horse. They draw patterns on wood, cut, saw, sand, stain and decorate each brightly-colored rocking horse.

Stotts is there to monitor and ensure safety remains first, and this year, the students created 60 horses.

The students are proud of their work and so happy to be able to help the Ronald McDonald House kids.

DISD's Multiple Careers Magnet Center not only works to give students job skills for construction, business technology, dry cleaning and travel and tourism; it also teaches them about the value of giving back and being a productive citizen.
