The Production Academy Graduates 32!
This year, the Academy expanded to include a "satellite" campus from Newport. Connected via Zoom for instruction, the remote location operated simultaneously as part of a single company. Combined, the 3 production units from Newport combined with the 5 production units in Spokane to manufacture 8 unique products, selling over 100 items including large heirloom chests, cherry and maple cutting boards, folding step-stools, hardwood chessboards, and more! Support from nearly 30 sponsors such as Wagstaff, Inc., Pearson Packaging, Hanson Industries, Idaho Central Credit Union, and Kaiser Aluminum helped to make this year's program wildly successful.
