The ag mechanics classes are designing, drawing, and making personalized “TEXAS” signs as a fundraiser project.

These signs are made from 16-gauge steel, and are approximately 20 inches by 20 inches. They are also powder coated in choice of red, white, yellow, black, blue, turquoise, antique pink, yellow, gold, orange, and brown.

The signs can be personalized with text, logos, and more. On the inside they can be colored matte black. Other colors are available at any additional cost.

The money raised  goes to the ag mechanics fundraiser for their supplies or things they need in order to make other projects. If interested in buying one, go talk to the ag mechanics teacher Stephen Stolusky to purchase your order and should continue throughout the school year.

Sophomore Larson Willeford said the students build the signs using a plasmacam, which is a machine that cuts through metal. The shop also recently got a new CO2 laser that can be used to cut wood.

In ag mechanics, students learn to weld as well as working with tools and in a shop.

Willeford had this to say about working in the shop:“Don’t start anything you can’t finish and always have safety glasses on.”
