Three Jefferson High School seniors in Dave Heimann’s welding class will leave a lasting and long-needed mark on their alma mater long after graduation later this month. After hours of design and labor, the large building at the south end of Boulder’s Main Street finally has a sign denoting that it is, in fact, Jefferson High School.
Jeyden Sullivan, Riley Stock and Luke Jackson designed the sign with Heimann and used a plasma cutter to carve their design of a panther, mountains, the American flag and the school’s name and logo into metal sheets, which were then welded onto a frame of steel tubing. Copper-colored backing sits between the sign faces.
The students, Heimann and senior Wade Rykal installed the sign outside the school on May 5.
