Lake Havasu High Maintains its ADDA Certification

Submitted by Betsy Parker, WAVE JTED Superintendent.

The Lake Havasu High School Drafting Technology Program is certified by the American Design Drafting Association (ADDA). The American Design Drafting Association is the premier certification organization in the USA and is an international non-profit, professional membership and educational organization born in Bartlesville, Oklahoma in 1948. On their website, they have posted an updated list of certified schools. The last time the list was posted, LHHS was 1 of 2 high schools in Arizona and 1 of 46 high schools in the nation to have their drafting program certified by the ADDA. The new statistics show LHHS as being the only high school in Arizona and 1 of 12 high schools across the nation that is certified.

LHHS continues to turn out certified architectural students which was evident by the 5 students who passed the 400 question test in under 3 hours last year. Currently, Mr. Aranguena’s advanced class is drawing plans for an ADDA competition involving a 3000 sq ft home that must be handicap accessible. The winner of the competition will receive a $100 cash prize along with a $677 voucher to attend the ADDA Annual Technical Conference held in Kansas City, Missouri on April 9-12 with plans being due Dec. 18th.  Good luck to the LHHS participants!
