CIP student Finn Lee-Gilligan hand crafted four benches for his Eagles Scout’s project. It’s a testament to how impactful the NEC/CIP has been in his life, as when it came to selecting a project, he wanted to do something to benefit his school.
Finn chose the bench plan online, which originally call for armrests to end in a 90 degree angle. But Finn suggested the design be modified so that it would overhang the post by a few inches. He explained that sometimes students needed to take a break outside and be able to sit and grip the end of the armrest (curling their fingers under)--this would be more calming. His insight led to a simple modification that will have a big impact for NEC students. Thank you, Finn!
