Chris Weller and a buddy at Solomon High School decided during their sophomore year that they wanted to go into education as industrial arts instructors. Both went to Fort Hays State University after SHS to major in education. That friend was Pete Meagher, who finished his teaching career in industrial arts at Salina Central High School a few years ago.
