For Skagit Valley College Welding instructor Mary Kuebelbeck, the welding classroom provides her students with many unique opportunities to learn and apply their skills, beyond traditional welding projects and applications. Projects also include art and strong community connections.

In partnership with the City of Mount Vernon, Mary and the SVC Weld Club students created a large art piece for the Mount Vernon Library. The Fern Sculpture will be dedicated on Tuesday, August 14th at 12:30 at the Mount Vernon Library. The public is invited to attend.

Fall classes at SVC start September 25. For information about SVC’s Welding program and other courses and programs, visit www.skagit.edu/getstarted .
