GREENS­BORO — Caro­line Ca­reer and Tech­nol­ogy stu­dents in the con­struc­tion and art classes re­ceived con­grat­u­la­tions and a thank you from Greens­boro of­fi­cials for build­ing the town’s Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions.

The town fea­tured the dec­o­ra­tions dur­ing its Christ­mas pa­rade and Light­ing of the City along E. Sun­set Av­enue and through­out the hol­i­day sea­son.

Greens­boro Mayor Joseph Noon, Vice Mayor Michael Mackey and Com­mis­sioner Joey Williamson joined the stu­dents in their class­room at North Caro­line High School on Dec. 16.

“I want to thank all of you for the out­stand­ing Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions you made

for our town,” Noon said. “If it was not for you all, I don’t think we would have had a light­ing of the city this year.

“Peo­ple love the dec­o­ra­tions,” he said. “Peo­ple have been shar­ing them on Face­book. Ev­ery­where I go, peo­ple stop me to tell me how great your dec­o­ra­tions look. I had one per­son ask me if you could build him a shed be­cause he was so im­pressed with your skills. Truly, from the bottom of my heart I just want to say thank you.”

Noon said the idea to build the dec­o­ra­tions came from CCTC teach­ers Den­nis Hall and Kurt Plinke, CCPS CTE Busi­ness Li­ai­son Joshua Zim­mer­man, North Caro­line High As­sis­tant Prin­ci­pal Ni­c­hole Fisher, Chris­tine Robin­son, Williamson and Mackey.

“I ap­pre­ci­ate what you did for the town,” Mackey said. “When I looked around be­fore the pa­rade, it was a beau­ti­ful job you did. They are very pro­fes­sional. They are great.

“The whole town loved it,” he said. “Every­one in the pa­rade said great things about it. You did a great job and we thank you very much.”

Hall said the stu­dents are very tal­ented at their craft. He also thanked Plinke for as­sist­ing with the project.

“I’m re­ally proud of all the stu­dents for the ex­cel­lent work they did,” Hall said. “It is great for them to see some­thing they made in the com­mu­nity. They did an out­stand­ing job, and we look for­ward to ex­plor­ing more projects in the fu­ture.”
