Students worked on a new welcome sign for the fair for weeks. They also helped repair corrals, handrails, and bull-riding chutes. Welding students tell KEPR that not only will this help them with their craft, but give them a legacy.
"When I go to the fairgrounds, it's something I'm going to definitely share with my kids and I'm hoping it will be there for my grandkids to see and other family members too of course," said welding student Kyle Wheeler.
The sign goes up this weekend. The Benton-Franklin Fair and Rodeo kicks off with the parade next week Saturday and of course the KEPR crew will be there.
