Welding Projects

New CSC grill built by the CHS Welding class.
Check out the near-finished project that the CHS Welding students worked on last spring!

CHS teacher, Jon Cogdill, took on a project for building a large grill for tail-gates and barbecues for Chadron State College. Our students designed a built this grill during class last semester. The grill was then hauled to Pine Ridge Job Corps for painting this summer. It just returned so finishing touches can be made and .... grilling can begin!

Original Cardinal grill built by the CHS Welding class.
The new CSC grill has several improvements from the original Cardinal Grill built two years ago. The new grill has folding work tables on three sides and a seven-rack smoker built on the back.

These projects allow students to not only take pride in designing and building community projects but better simulate the business of manufacturing and working with customers.  The success of these projects has already lead to more orders ... including grills.
