Four Kwantlen trades students have put their class work to use after they manufactured 50 metal sign posts for Langley Rotary Club’s Annual Wine and Food Festival.
Kwantlen’s metal fabrication instructor Robert Finlayson, who has been teaching for 12 years, led the group of Shane Bryant, Harley Northeast, Keith Ginn, and Chris Colt.
According to a Kwantlen press release, Finlayson put his student’s names down to help build the sign posts, and gave them class time as well as after class hours to complete the job. “Bill [Evans] knew what he wanted and was very specific about the details that were going to make it work for them,” said Finlayson.
Evans is the committee member who handed the students the designs for the signs.
He was impressed with the signs and said, “All the vendors this year were very impressed with the way the signs posts turned out.” He added, “Without the students’ hard work, this project would not have been possible.”
