They designed it. They planned it. They built it.
And after months of hard work, students unveiled their new sign in an Oct. 8 ceremony at the Lorain County JVS in Pittsfield Township.
“This project means a lot to me, my class, and this school and hopefully will mean a lot to the community as well,” said Josh Newman, a senior in the masonry trades program.
Students from a number of JVS disciplines had a hand in the project: carpentry, industrial electricity, landscape and greenhouse management, masonry, Web and graphic design, collision repair, and the Career Connections Academy.
Jeff Couch of Star Builders took part in a ribbon-cutting for the installation. Star Builders was involved with the project from the very beginning.
“It is an amazing and beautiful sign,” said Couch. “Every day when I drive by it, I will be reminded of the participation we had in it and will remember the whole experience for many years to come.”
At the conclusion of the ceremony, a special plaque was presented to JVS carpentry instructor Jason Rodriguez.
Brandon Harris, a senior carpentry student from Amherst, delivered a few special remarks on behalf of the 2016 carpentry class: “We are honored you believed in us and in our abilities,” he told his teacher.
The new sign is located at the front entrance of Lorain County JVS on Rt. 58.
