Shop Class Sign-Making Business Success

After starting up in the fall, the metal sign-making business that is run out of the Leigh Community Schools shop is progressing quite well. 

The shop classes have sold over 50 signs at $45-$50 a sign, resulting in revenue over $2750.  All of the funds go into other projects and new tools for the shop.

The FFA banquet also resulted in five signs being sold that totaled over $500 dollars. That is an amazing profit. It also brought in about 15 new orders for signs just that night!

One student who has a large role in the sign-making enterprise is Jordan Noonan. He has put in countless hours designing and producing most of the signs that are sold. He said that, “Our new plasma cutter has been a huge benefit for me and the rest of the Ag classes. It has taught me how to use different designing websites to make signs and make me see how it will end up as a final project. It has also taught me skills on how to run a small business with us selling the signs. I think the Ag/ Industrial Tech classes are a huge benefit and teach us a ton of life skills.”

Ag teacher Mr. Jarrod Bazata said, “I feel that it has had a great impact on our ag and industrial technology program. It is a great opportunity for students to be creative and is becoming a great addition to teaching students how to run a business.”

If anyone would like to purchase a custom metal sign, they can contact an ag student or Mr. Bazata or call the Leigh Community Schools office!
