Claiborne Academy is now offering welding classes on campus. Students are learning and implementing MiG and Stick welding procedures and are practicing the safety skills required by OSHA guidelines. Students are encouraged to apply cross curriculum subjects by using math, geometry, reading and art when designing, measuring and cutting projects. Students also benefit by gaining knowledge of workplace ethics and expectations.
Students have been busy making and marketing deer stands, horseshoe art and other farm related items such as small and large hay racks.
Future plans are to build a greenhouse to teach Horticulture. Students will be able to plant, grow and market flowers, hanging baskets and garden plants each Spring. These classes are for Jr. High through High School.
Mr. Lacobee would like to thank Mrs. Silmon and all of the Claiborne Academy supporters for all the work and donations needed to get this program started.
