St. Elmo’s Agriculture program has a welding class for St Elmo and Brownstown students. Mr Thurnau is the teacher of the welding class and agriculture program. The AG shop is where students come for hands-on-learning. They learn trades in this class that they will actually use in real life. In this class you learn how to weld, torch, use a grinder, design projects, fix broken equipment (learn how to fix it correctly), rebuild engines, and the list goes on and on. Mr. Thurnau is preparing students for jobs in many different fields from farming and welding to crop adjustment insurance and scientists who genetically modify seeds. No career, big or small, is left untouched in his program.
