Signs of Achievement


Visitors to the town of Horton, Kan., now have a new welcome, thanks to FFA member Austin Spielman.

Austin designed and built a new 12-foot sign for the entrance into town by using a computer-controlled plasma cutter in his school shop.

Austin’s favorite career development event is agricultural mechanics, where he has excelled in district and state competitions. He works on his family’s farm and custom fertilizer business for his supervised agricultural experience program.
