Ann Arbor Student Builders Are Back-to-Back State Champs!

April 23, 2012 - ANN ARBOR

Our young people never cease to amaze me. Working hard and pushing
their own personal envelopes of growth, the Ann Arbor Student Home
Building Program students won their second straight State TeamWorks
championship bringing the gold medal home to Ann Arbor. An all first-year
student team representing  four  A2 high schools will go to national
competition in Kansas City, Missouri from June 23rd to 28th to compete
for the national title. Team members are: Grant Stadelman, Huron junior,
carpenter and Team captain, William Carras, Pioneer senior and electrician,
Patrick Wiesner, Skyline senior and plumber, and Jonas Gearhart/Hall
Community High junior,and brick mason.

 The students won the presentation portion of the two day competition.
They were given an unknown plan and 30 minutes to put together a business
plan to build an addition on a fictitious existing house incorporating all the
trades and the structural issues in the plans.  Each student had to speak
extemporaneously to explain their plan. The next day they receive a second
new plan. Using that plan,they have five hours to build a structure, working
together to complete it on time with limited materials. They were the only
team to complete the project.  

 Gary Dresselhouse was there to witness the event. Gary also served as
one of the plumbing judges for the event. Thank you Gary! Also big thanks
to Diane Calmeyn who singlehandedly procured funding for all the plumbing
materials from Greater Michigan PMC, then negotiated through delivery 
difficulties to get everything there on time. Thanks PMC, UA 190 and Diane
again for all your support.

AASBIP were the defending 2011 Michigan State champs. It is quite an
accomplishment for these young men to repeat this. I hope you join me
in congratulating the 2012 Skills USA TeamWorks State Champions.

Kansas City here we come!

The first Flippin' Out for Student Builders Pancake Supper was in 2010, and its success funded scholarships for hard-working Student Builders selected from a diverse group of applicants from the Ann Arbor area.

The well attended "Flippin’ Out for Student Builders Pancake Dinner" was a fundraising event held November 30, 2010 designed to improve awareness of the Ann Arbor Student Building Industry Program and to provide scholarship opportunities for students who wish to attend college in a construction related field of study. The Pancake Dinner was very successful with an approximate profit of $2,700.00 for the Scholarship Fund.
