Chamber Coffee Held at WHS Industrial Tech Room

C02 Cutter

Washington High School had the opportunity to host this month's Chamber coffee and had an awesome turnout. Members of the school board, Cherokee Community School District staff, business owners and the community gathered in the Industrial Tech Room for coffee and refreshments and the opportunity to see all of the ongoing improvements being made to the school's industrial Tech program. WHS high school Industrial Tech teacher, Alec Wynn spoke to the group about  how excited the students are to be able to work with such a high tech machine. "When you tell students we're gonna be blowing holes in steel with a high tech laser, you got 'em!" said Mr. Wynn. The Industrial Tech program encourages students to pursue  careers in the industrial tech field. Some of these students may struggle in the typical general education setting, but flourish in programs, such as this. Students enjoy hands-on learning and projects that they find interesting, are good at, and most of all, proud of!

He also gave the community members a demonstration of the new CO2 Laser, used to create many of the items on display for a drawing that was held and a chance to win the grand prize of Corn Hole boards. This new addition to the program wouldn't be possible without the partnership the school district receives from many local businesses, such as RJ Thomas Manufacturing, Bomgaars, and the Education Foundation, so a huge thank you to them.
