At the Edge and Beyond – Hanover Building Trades
A month and a half ago Mr. Landis was contacted by Carol Ramsay, Manager of the Water’s Edge Condominiums in Cedar Lake. The Condo Association was looking for a cost effective way to add signage to the property. “I am not an alumnus, or a parent of a student,” said Ms. Ramsay, “but I thought this might be a way to showcase the talent at your school.”
The project involved two Building Trades classes and a total of 21 students. Not only did the students construct two signs, but several students; Rich Loudermilk and Kody Snyder led the design effort. “We worked off of the Association’s logo,” said Loudermilk who noted that the colors for the sign were custom mixed and the lettering used is one of a kind. “We did the lettering free hand,” he said. Kody Snyder cut the letters. “Routing the lettering was the most time consuming and tedious part,” said Loudermilk. “The slightest movement in the wrong direction and the whole sign would need to be redone,” Rich added. There were no accidents and the signs were completed on the first attempt. The students, teacher and Association members are all pleased with the end product.
“I had nothing in mind for the design,” said Ms. Ramsay. “I thought it would be nice for the students to come up with their own design and they did a great job. Your students can certainly take pride in what they did.”
Ben Landis agrees; “I love the work my students are doing and want to continue the great legacy of this program as well as the work of the school corporation. We love making great products for this incredible community.”
From planter boxes at the Hanover Trustee’s Office that provided fresh produce to those in need, to their work on the state-of-the-art soccer complex at the high school, to signs for the Water’s Edge Condominiums, to a entire house, these are students and an instructor who are leaving their mark all over the Hanover community with pride, hard work and talent.
