From “Sargento cheese guitar made at FVTC” — GRAND CHUTE – Are you a cheese and music lover? Some area students mixed the two together for a special project.

Company officials from cheesemaker Sargento Foods made a visit to Fox Valley Technical College Monday.

They were collecting a customized cheese guitar.

The guitar will be put in Sargento’s lobby to help raise awareness on what initiatives around the region are going on to build skill sets.

Organizers say the students learned a variety of skills during the project.

“They start with a solid block of wood and they start exploring different careers like mechanical design and they have to design and cut out their guitar, after that you’re looking at wood science, there’s soldering, all the science of intonation and tuning so they cover about a dozen different careers that they explore,” said Steve Gallagher, FAB Lab manager.

A guitar building class is offered through Fox Valley Tech.
