AC/GC High School Gets A New Look

A collaborative effort from two local businesses gave Adair-Casey/Guthrie Center High School a new look. Wilson Welding and Schafer Roofing, both located in Adair, placed a new 15 foot wide by five feet tall steel sign that reads “AC/GC High School,” just before the front entrance of the building. Designer Jeff Johnston says that this sign took roughly seven months to draft a design and get the materials. He explains that the plan was to match the sign with the color with the new weight room.
