Can high school girls build masonry projects? Yes they can! MITA showed how at the 10th Annual NAWIC San Diego Construction Camp. MITA puts tools in their hands and materials on site. They built 2 planters in 1 day! The planters design match the updated entrance to Athletic Fields at Kearny High School. Thanks to MITA Instructor Dave Ratynski and Modern Masonry’s Esteban Leon, and to Modern Masonry for sharing your masons. BIG thanks to RCP Block & Brick for materials and supplies – the best!.
