industrial technology, and business classes at Arnold Public High School of
Arnold, Nebraska, joined forces in 2002 to create a student-run graphic sign
company named School House Graphic
Products, (SHGP). Powered by
creativity and cutting edge technology, the company provides students
opportunities to explore their talents, be they artistic, technical, or
SHGP recently bought a new laser. The new laser
cost about $20,100 and enables the business to engrave glass material. The new
laser is a lot faster, bigger, and more powerful than the old one.
We are also experimenting with 3D wraparounds,"
said Dillon Olson, a junior that is a member of SHGP. It is pretty amazing to
watch this thing in action, as the words "PROPERTY OF ARNOLD PUBLIC SCHOOLS" was
engraved on the bottom of my computer; in about 30 seconds it was done.
jobs the students have completed are: Signs and banners for businesses in the village
of Arnold and surrounding communities, banners and race car numbers for the
Sandhills Open Road Challenge, personalization/identification names for laptop
computers nationwide, plaques/awards for athletic events, 911 road
identification signs for Custer County, Nebraska, and trophies for National
American Miss Beauty Pageants.
