Jewel of the City

  • From the Fall River Herald News

    Diman Regional Vocational Technical High School has a long and distinguished history, not only of turning out first-rate graduates, but of lending a hand when needed. The latest example of this community spirit comes in the form of Diman students replacing an antiquated heating system at the Fall River Water Department building.

    The system was, to be kind, in bad shape. City finances being what they always are, a much-needed replacement seemed unlikely. That's when the Diman cavalry rode to the rescue, offering not just to patch, but to replace the complaining, old heating system.

    And the Diman students aren't doing a halfway job either. They're installing new boilers, new pipes, new baseboards and a 15-zone heat control system. What's not to like about this deal? The Water Department (and its long-suffering employees) will get a building whose heating ability is equal to the New England winters. The students from Diman get, not just experience in their various trades, but an opportunity to do something good. They also get the opportunity to learn how nice it is to help someone out of a jam.

    The kids at Diman will someday practice a wide variety of trades, including plumbing, heating, car repair, culinary arts, construction and much more. In short, Diman students are learning to do the work that makes the world run. Put a dozen men of genius in a room to solve all the world's problems and they won't get much done if there's no roof on the building, no heat or no plumbing.

    Since Diman grads will go forth to do the work that runs the world, it's a good idea they get a solid grounding, not just in hammer and nails work, but in the harder work of honesty, caring and lending a helping hand.

    Over the decades, Fall River and its surrounding towns have been well-served by Diman. It's there that our sons and daughters get on the path to a good job and it's from there that Diman graduates go out to take up all kinds of important jobs.

    And, time and time again, Diman students who have not yet graduated, lend their hands and their hearts to some important piece of work that would never get done without their skilled, cheerful assistance.
