West Jefferson Alumni, Kevin Summers, recently visited our school and brought with him a Robotic Welder. He helped the Ag students create programs on the computer and then the next day, he demonstrated how the welder works using those programs. Kevin generously gave away five welding helmets and approximately twenty pairs of gloves to the students. (Side note: Kevin originally brought in three welding helmets to give away, but when he witnessed our students saying the Pledge of Allegiance at the beginning of school and learned that West Jefferson students say the pledge every day, he went back out to his car and brought in two more helmets with a Patriotic design on them that he added to the giveaway.) A big thank you to Kevin Summers for sharing this with our students!
