WHS History Students Road Trippin' in Kansas City!

You can read books about it, you can listen to lectures about it, you can even watch videos and other media materials BUT there is nothing like the real thing and it's the real thing WHS Juniors participated in Tuesday on a 16 hour road trip to Kansas City and back home. WHS instructors Mike Wilmoth and Rick Phelps oversee these annual excursions. Between the 5:15AM departure and 9:45pm arrival back home, here's what they did!

Industrial Arts @ WHS * Hands-On & Practical

Industrial Arts is an educational program which features fabrication of objects in wood or metal using a variety of hand, power, or machine tools. A visit to Mr. Ryan Elder's classes on Wednesday at WHS found many interesting and practical projects in progress. No student encouragement is needed - when the bell rings the students get down to business. A couple of classes were building tool caddies, others worked on numerous woodwork items including tables, outdoor furniture and more.
