A golf tournament sign gets its finishing touches

For about three days this spring, the welding lab at Clinton High School (CHS) buzzed with a different kind of energy ― the kind that comes with an impromptu creative project. Piedmont Technical College Dual Enrollment students at CHS jumped at the opportunity to design and create unique signs for the upcoming PTC Foundation Annual Golf Classic, scheduled for Friday, April 27, at The Links at Stoney Point.

“They were excited to do it,” PTC Welding Instructor Jim Ladd says. “It was a chance for them to do something different and use their creativity. Whenever I’m asked to produce something and have a chance to let students do it, I would rather them do the work. I knew they could meet the challenge, and they learned some different techniques doing it as well.”

Ladd says the students were given general parameters for the signs, began drawing out their designs on drafting paper, cut the shapes from donated scrap metal, welded them and painted them with black primer.

“I think the opportunity to use Dual Enrollment students was really great,” Ladd says. “The signs were completely products of the students’ creativity.”
