The Bridgehampton School District has introduced a Construction Student Ambassador Program where students have an opportunity to meet with the architect, construction manager and constructors who are involved in the 35,000-square-foot expansion of the school building, which includes a new gymnasium, cafeteria, fitness center, locker rooms and a technology room. The real-world experience, which takes place every two weeks, allows students to ask questions and tour the construction site. “This opportunity enables our students to develop a wide range of skills from communication, collaboration, responsibility, confidence and leadership,” Superintendent of Schools Robert Hauser said. “We are pleased that they can master these abilities right outside our school building.”
