Noble’s Pond maintenance team members model their new t-shirts.

The Dover, Del., 55+ community Noble’s Pond needed t-shirts for its staff members to wear onsite and as it worked with charities and other organizations in Central Delaware.

It was a project tailor-made for a group of Dover High School students in an academic and life skills program.

Special education teacher Jomelle Bowen helps students prepare for employment after high school. One of the program’s components is a printing shop, where students print logos, slogans and graphics on cloth items for fellow students, neighbors and local businesses.

The builder asked Bowen if her students would print new t-shirts for the community’s construction and service staff, and she thought that was a fine idea.

The students were excited to have a “real-world” assignment, and did an outstanding job creating the t-shirts, Bowen said. She’s hoping it leads to more work with the community – like tote bags, golf shirts party favors and other printing jobs.

Nobel’s Pond has been honored with nine HBA of Delaware Regal Awards for excellence in home building, interior design and community development, and received a 2018 Torch Award from the Better Business Bureau Serving Delaware for best practices, leadership, social responsibility and high standards of organizational ethics.
