ODY Students Help Library Put Finishing Touch on Renovated Local History Room !

The Drawing, Design and Production class at Owen D. Young Central School, also known as “DDP”, were industrious this last quarter of school. This class consists of nine students; Landon Broat 9th, Cameron Burgher 9th, Grace Frable 9th, Maizy-Grace Misiewicz 9th, Aedan Osborn 9th, Iris Weller 9th, Evan Davis 11th, Gabriel Kilbourn 12th, and Aric Steenburg 12th. Mrs. Supp the Library Manager from the Jordanville Public Library. And Ms. Wilber ODY schools librarian also President of the Trustess of the Jordanville Public Library. Both reached out to the Owen D. Young Central School and requested that the Technology Program would build two bookshelves from reclaimed wainscoting (boards) from the History Room inside the Jordanville Public Library. We were given a sketch from Mrs. Supp that we had to stay within the parameters but had some flexibility to be creative. This task was student driven which led to creativity and allow the students to manipulate the original design. The Agriculture/Technology instructor, Mr. Dando suggested alternative options which helped drive the student’s design plan. The end products were completely different but spectacular as one fit the parameters of the original design and the second was a newly invented creation by this group of design students.
