Shop students design and fabricate new sign for library

A lengthy school project in the metal shop classroom that evolved over the course of a year and a half, involving six high schoolers and their shop teacher, Todd Janicek, culminated in the city’s erection of a tawny-looking copper-colored sign last week.

Head Librarian Tammy Covalt had approached Janicek several months ago and inquired about the shop students making a sign that would stand on the front lawn of the library and be visible from both north and south directions.

Janicek agreed and his students set to work on it. Money for the project came from the Wilma “Billie” Johnson and Jeff Conrad memorials. Janicek and the students volunteered their time to come up with an all-weather sign that would be unique and fun to create, as well as stand up to the harsh Nebraska winters and brutal summer heat.
