Stu­dents De­sign Tro­phies From Sal­vaged Car Parts

McDonald County Press - - COUNTY - By Cindy Brown

NEOSHO — Crow­der Col­lege stu­dents in Casey Smith’s 3-D de­sign course have de­signed one-of-a-kind tro­phies from sal­vaged car parts for the Roughrider Car Show and Kids Kar­ni­val, which takes place Satur­day, April 28, at the col­lege. Since the in­cep­tion of the event in 2016, Smith has in­te­grated tro­phy de­sign into her cur­ricu­lum. Stu­dents visit sal­vage yards to col­lect parts and pieces, de­velop a de­sign, and con­struct and paint the tro­phies.

“Each year the tro­phies are a huge hit with car show par­tic­i­pants, not only be­cause they are so unique, but be­cause they show­case the tal­ent of our art stu­dents so well. Par­tic­i­pants re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate know­ing that the tro­phies have been part of the stu­dents’ learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence at Crow­der Col­lege,” said as­sis­tant di­rec­tor of re­source de­vel­op­ment and alumni re­la­tions Ha­ley Rear­don.
