Thanks to some federal funding, Clearwater Valley High School’s agricultural program is now a little bit richer. In machinery, anyway. The CVHS agricultural ed program recently received the Carl Perkins Federal Grant for the 2017-18 year and with that money was able to purchase six new DialArc 250 ac/dc welders, eight regulators, 11 hoses, nine torches, 18 tips, and 12 electrode holders. “The equipment will allow the students to learn and develop skills necessary to meet industry standards,” explained agricultural science teacher Kirk Summers. “The equipment is the current use of the industry at this time. All of the new welding equipment meets the highest safety standards and thus will allow students to learn and work according to the safety standards of the industries.”February 7, 2018 6 a.m. read more..
