Galena Park High Welding Students Receive Donation from Advanced Welding Solutions

Houston, Texas: Galena Park ISD CTE Welding students and staff would like to thank Advanced Welding Solutions for their generous donation of new welding hoods. This year, due to the number of students testing for their American Welding Society (AWS) certification, the program ran short on welding hoods. When Tim Choate, VP of Operations for Advanced Welding Solutions heard about the dilemma, he and his colleague, Mr. Ronny Odom, delivered welding hoods to students in the program at Galena Park High School. Choate and Odom spoke to students about the great need for welders and pipe fitters in the Houston-Port Region. Choate emphasized the value of earning industry recognized credentials in high school by stating, "I am grateful there are CTE Welding programs at the high school level. All of you have an opportunity to capitalize on earning your AWS certification; there are jobs waiting on you after graduation if you are able to obtain this credential."
