NCC Welders’ Art Showcased on Campus

A new jack sculpture adorns Nash Community College’s campus. Symbolic of the college’s first President, Jack Ballard, the piece represents strength, vision and innovation. NCC welding and fabrication students enrolled in the WLD 121: GMAW (MIG) class designed the jack using AutoCAD software and created the mild steel structure in approximately three weeks using a gas metal arc welding technique.
