Students in Cut Bank High School’s Torchmate class are perfecting their skills on the digital plasma cutter and giving back to the community with their latest projects. The students made these welcome signs as a quick fundraiser to help with Jamie Freed’s upcoming liver transplant expenses. They are also making Cut Bank Wolves signs to raise money for the Cut Bank Volunteer Fire Department’s equipment fund. See details on page A6 of this week’s issue. Pictured are, left to right, Wyatt Michaels, Josiah Fultz, Regan Walter, Matt Meiwald, Dawson Vasboe, Hunter Kennedy, Jazper Gaither, Ray Little Young Man; and not pictured, Matt Larson, Dillon Gray, Kalub McCoy, Jacob Gohr and Wyatt Berkram.

The talented Cut Bank High School students in Brian Hayes’ Torchmate class are doing more than learning how to use the computerized plasma cutter. They are also learning how important–and rewarding–it is to give back to their community.

The students designed and made over a dozen “welcome” signs to be given away on Monday, Oct. 25. The students distributed the signs to local businesses on Oct. 8 and are asking folks to sign up to win the signs when they make a donation of any amount to the Jamie Freed Benefit.

Jamie was diagnosed 10 years ago with Autoimmune Hepatitis which causes liver failure. On Sept. 15, Jamie was notified she is officially on the liver transplant list and is heading to the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix for the costly procedure.

The students are also making Cut Bank Wolves signs to be given away on Friday, Oct. 29. Donations of any amount can be made to the Cut Bank Volunteer Fire Department when residents sign up to win the signs at local businesses.

The CBVFD will use the proceeds toward the purchase of needed equipment.

To sign up to win a sign and make a donation to these worthwhile causes, please stop by the following businesses:

•Rose Petal

•Cut Bank Creek Brewery

•The Hairport


•Billman’s Home Décor

•NAPA/B&B Auto Parts


•Stockman Bank

•Frontline Ag Solutions
