On Friday afternoon, students and staff from Pontiac High School, along with a large contingent of guests, gathered in the school’s welding shop for a barbeque celebrating a generous donation and former teacher.
The event marked a donation of $30,000 from the Canadian Welding Bureau’s charitable arm, the CWB Welding Foundation, which was used to purchase some brand new equipment for the shop. It also served as a celebration of the life of previous welding instructor Sylvio Richard, who passed away suddenly late last year.
