Vocational classes that teach high school students trade skills are common in our state. One school is taking its vocational skills to the next level. Lovell High School is now in the tiny house business.

Powell High School and Northwest College are partnering to offer vocational classes to high school students who are not planning to go to college.

It came down to the final day, but the Wyoming legislature finally approved a bill that would require students to take vocational or arts classes in order to qualify for the Hathaway Scholarship.  The idea was to remove a foreign language requirement in order for students to be able to take other courses. 

But Senator Phil Nicholas argued that it was important to allow students who wanted four years of foreign language to be able to have it.  Bill Sponsor Sam Krone says it was a good idea.
