CET classThe North State Building Industry Association (BIA), in conjunction with The Hills Group, is pleased to announce a gift of $4,000 to the Sierra College Construction and Energy Technology program.

Last fall, the North State BIA co-hosted a series of public tours of The Showhouse at Cavitt Ranch, a cutting edge 7,000-square foot home designed and built by The Hills Group that flawlessly blends the California Craftsman style with contemporary elements and innovative design. The resulting proceeds from the public tours make up the entirety of the gift to Sierra College.

“The home building industry is always looking to the future and there’s no better way to do that than by supporting students today,” said Michael Strech, President and CEO of the North State BIA. “We’re pleased to offer our support to the students, staff and, faculty involved in Sierra College’s Construction and Energy Technology program.”

“With so many of our projects happening in the area, we felt it was important to keep this gift local,” said Paul Hills, President at The Hills Group. “We really admire the efforts being made by Sierra College to educate students about the wealth of options available to them in the home building industry.”

According to Sierra College staff involved in the Construction and Energy Technology program, the donated funds will go toward the purchase of a portable SawStop Contractor Model, with an extra blade and cartridge; a 12" sliding compound miter saw with a portable stand, and an extra blade; and a portable electric air compressor.

“We are so grateful for this generous donation and the great, ongoing support we receive from the region’s home building industry,” said Sonja Lolland, Ed.D., Dean of the Business and Technology Division at Sierra College. “This equipment will enhance the educational offerings we provide our students and further our end goal of guiding more students into the construction and energy industries.”
