UTTC President David Gipp and students

UTTC President David M. Gipp congratulates two students who helped build the kitchen they're standing in. Kevin Mentz (Standing Rock), at left, and Chance Fox (Three Affiliated) were part of the team of students in Construction Technology that built the 1,248 square foot house in the UTTC Skill Center. The students held an open house in early July to show off their expertise and display the home to potential buyers. Instructor Michael Matheny says the house is being offered at $70,000 (modest for today's housing prices). If that isn't bargain enough, according to a real estate agent Matheny is working with, the house could be had for even less. A housing finance program, aimed at getting houses out to tribal areas, would kick in funding that could reduce the cost by $25,000. For more information contact Matheny at 701-255-3285 x 1242 or mmatheny@uttc.edu.
