Twenty-one Cumberland High School students enrolled in Building Trades I recently completed the 10 hour OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) Safety in Construction class. This class trains workers and employers on the recognition, avoidance, and prevention of hazards in the workplace. After successful completion of the course, participants are awarded their OSHA cards, which are issued by the Department of Labor. The training covers such topics as fall protection, personal protective equipment, electrical safety, excavation hazards, and life-saving equipment.

Building Trades instructor David Sullivan said, “I am very proud of them!” He added that students in his Energy and Power and Sustainability classes also completed training and received their OSHA cards.

Building Trades I students receiving their OSHA 10 Cards include the following: FRONT ROW: Christian Jackson and Damon Sims.

BACK ROW: Orianna Anthony, Troy Ortiz, Michael Blevins, Chris Johnston, Julie Westbrook, Cesar Gamez, Ziahir Berry, Malachi McLean, Sultan Abassi, Brian Simpson, and Josh Marsh.

 

On October 9, 2017, Cumberland Seniors Brandon Caban, Muhammed Fulani, Ty’shon Scott, Jonathan Langhorne, Matthew Thompson, and Davidrick Brooks were recognized by the Cumberland School Board for participating in the Call Me Mister program at Longwood University. This free six-day program was led by Dr. Maurice Carter, who was assisted by two Cumberland High School graduates, Bryant Winbush and DelMonté Langhorne. These graduates served as mentors for the high school students who attended the program.

The Call Me MISTER program is a national teacher leadership program that not only prepares young men for a successful career as an elementary or secondary teacher, but also provides them with resources that will place them in a position where they can effectively impact the lives of children.
