Oregon-Davis woodworking students have created a memorial of sorts to a longtime pillar of the local community. Following the death of Richard Jensen, his wife donated a lot of the wood that he’d collected to the high school. Over the past few months, students have taken some of those wood pieces and assembled them into a table lamp, which they plan to present to Mrs. Jensen.
Woodworking teacher Ron Heningsmith showed the lamp to the Oregon-Davis School Board last week. He said he and the students still have some finishing touches to put on it. He also wants to add a small plaque to the base, honoring Jensen’s legacy.
