Brad Kohler, of North Platte, receives a symbolic key to the 2018 North Platte Community College Foundation Auction House on Thursday from Roger Fattig, NPCC building construction instructor.
Kohler submitted the winning bid of $127,500 for the home in May. Proceeds will go toward scholarships for students in the college's Building Construction, Electrical and Heating Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration (HVAC-R) Technology programs. They are the ones who built the house – an ongoing tradition since 1971.
A similar home is currently under construction.
