Kentucky high school students get to work with heavy equipment

The Courier Journal in Louisville, Kentucky reports on a program that puts high school students behind the controls of heavy equipment.

The students are participating in a program that gives them the chance to work on real construction projects. The students are building a football field, an outdoor classroom, and a retention pond.

The program combines classroom lessons with on-the-job work. Local trucking and construction companies donate equipment and supplies.
