Central Catholic class of 2021 seniors build hand sanitizer stations for St. Luke’s Catholic School

A group of Central Catholic seniors (class of 2021), who are St. Luke Catholic School alumni (class of 2017), spent September 5 building 11 PVC pipe hand sanitizer dispenser stations for the middle school — providing a station for each of the middle school classrooms (with a 12th station already built as a demo). The stations, which can be operated with a foot lever, deliver an inexpensive solution to providing students and faculty with “touch free” access to hand sanitizer. Seniors and their families taking part in the project were Jason Albor, Ian Doran, Chris Galvan, Roland Garcia, Esai Luna, James Nanthikattu, Diego Ramos, Adam Rodriguez, Enrique Rodriguez, Justin Rodriguez, and Nicholas Whelan.

Parents who funded this project and assisted the Central seniors with the build were Ann and Carl Albor, Tommie Galvan, Rosie Garcia, Deb and Ray Luna, Chris and Dipu Nanthikattu, Kari and Bill Ramos, Gaby and Enrique Rodriguez, Yolanda and Ernest Rodriguez, and Tracey and Charlie Whelan. Ann Albor, a teacher at St. Luke Catholic School, initiated the idea, and Charlie Whelan oversaw the build with assistance from St. Luke parent Joseph Valencia.
