Red Baron Sponsors Student Scholarships

Red Baron Sponsors Student Scholarships

  The students in Tonya Wheat’s career and technology classes recently produced and presented house plans and home decorating to a panel of judges for the Red Baron Scholarships given out each year. Altogether, Lindale students received $4,200 in awards.

     “This was a ‘fixer upper’ project,” engineering teacher Tonya Wheat said. “Mr. Alexander sent us a floor plan that needed some curb appeal and a little reconstruction.”

     The students had three weeks to re-design the house. They worked on the interior and exterior on an AutoCAD program, picked out finishes and appliances and were required to create design boards of their projects.  The aspiring engineers were then required to present their projects to a panel of judges for their potential scholarship.

     “This competition was a lot of fun,” junior Chase Welvaert said. “Not only did we get to build our skills, but we got to do so in a real life floor-plan setting.”
