Students attend vo-ag workshopPublished 5:46pm Tuesday, July 31, 2012
Nine seventh and eighth grade students from Lacey’s Spring and Eva schools participated in a three-day welding and woodworking workshop at Union Hill School last week.
They received instruction from Union Hill’s agribusiness teacher Perry Holmes and learned the basics of welding as well as the operation of electric shop equipment.
To demonstrate their newly-acquired skills, each student made a horseshoe gun rack.
“Students at Lacey’s Spring and Ryan don’t have the opportunity to take agribusiness classes,” Holmes said. “That’s why we opened our shop to their seventh and eighth grade students during the summer break.
“Hopefully, these three days of working with welding and woodworking equipment will give them a better look at the courses that will be available to them when they attend Brewer.”
