Window on the Workplace

Brad Northcutt, Work-based Learning Coordinator

On Wednesday, January 25, Ric Hartman, Superintendent of the Springville Division of Wildlife Resources office, spoke to students at lunch about careers with the DWR and its various departments.  Students were able to learn about the many different areas of focus with the DWR and their duties. 

Most came away impressed by the sheer number of jobs for the State of Utah that need to be done to manage the fish and wildlife we have.  Students commented also on the fact that Mr. Hartman enjoyed his job immensely due to the variety of duties and experiences he has had.

SHS Welding Department hosts the Nebo Welding Invitational

by Brian Ostler, SHS Welding Teacher

On Friday, January 20, 2017, the SHS Welding Department hosted the Nebo Welding Invitational. This is a contest for high school welding students from the five high school in the district. Fifteen students, three from each school, competed in the “widget” building contest. A “widget” is a basic design that incorporates all of the welding processes and positions that the students learn during their welding classes.

A new contest was added to the Invitational this year, due to the size of the shop here at SHS. This new contest is called the fabrication contest. This allowed an additional fifteen students to compete. A team of three students from each school were given a set of blueprints and the raw materials to build a project. The project that was built was a set of ATV ramps. These ramps are going to be donated to the Springville FFA to be sold at their livestock/booster auction.
