Rankin Ag Students Offset Costs With Fabrications

From left to right: McLaurin High School (Rankin County School District) freshmen Abby Harper, Ava Welch and Chloe Morris pose with metal fire pits and decorations fabricated at the school this winter. Agriculture students designed and produced metal goods they then sold to help offset the costs of field trips and supplies. The three students were enrolled in the school’s Introduction to Agriculture class.
