Along with the H wing and the new gym, the ag shop also opened Jan. 4. The new ag shop is slightly larger, according to ag teacher Jonathan Deaton, and better organized because of a new setup.

All of the old equipment from the old shop went in the new shop. The facility also has more electrical outlets and air hoses. The construction workers also built an upstairs area for storage.

A look at the new ag shop from above.

“We hope to build metal tables, welding tables, smokers, working on two donated four wheelers and smokers,” Deaton said. “There are new vents for the stick welders. The vents vent the toxins from when you are stick welding.”

Some students are building  smokers for shows, or just for personal use at home, and also build fire pits, trailers, and our pig pens for the ag barn.

This month students have been learning about small engine repair. Students recently  got one of the four wheelers running out of the two that were donated. Now students are tearing down the other four wheeler and try to get it running. More projects are planned for the rest of the semester.
