McFarland Youth Apprentice Alton Slane

McFarland High School swimmer helps construct new aquatic center, school renovations

When Alton Slane walks around the newly constructed areas of McFarland High School, he can see the fruits of his labor. Slane, a member of the swim team, recalls removing gear from the pool where he spent countless practice hours to later be placed in the new pool area.Slane started a Youth Apprenticeship (YA) program with J.H. Findorff & Son Inc. as a junior in October 2018 and has worked on the school since the pool and auditorium were “just holes in the ground with some walls,” he said.
