And so the food truck adventure begins...
Don't call us crazy, call us entrepreneurs! Our Business and Media Production CAPS, NeboCAPS and ALC students are excited to announce that we will be converting a school bus into a working mobile food truck this year. The bus was delivered on Friday and we are BEYOND excited! The bus was purchased at auction for our NeboCAPS students through the Nebo School District CTE department. Our ever fearless CTE Coordinator, Alan Ashton, drove to Arizona to hand-deliver the bus to us.
SFHS Business students in Mrs. Ford and Mrs. Whittekiend’s classes had a short lesson about Brand Identity and Brand Recognition before choosing a brand to represent on their blank turkey. The rules stated that they couldn’t directly use the logo or the brand name, but needed to make the turkey’s brand recognizable. We have so many fun and creative students!
Students from the MMHS advanced welding class were able to go on a field trip where they toured 4 union halls (sheet metal workers, pipefitters, ironworkers, and boilermakers) and Weber State University's welding engineering department. It was a long day of over 10 hours and 200 miles but the students enjoyed using the equipment at several of the union halls, learning about post-high school options, and meeting with multiple experts in the field of welding and other trades. Thank you to everyone who made this field trip possible!
