The metals shop at Robertson High School had some pretty old machines. This week, that's all changed.
Robertson teacher Gary Leger remembers using the equipment when he was a student in the 1970s, and the machines have remained in the welding classroom during his eight years at the high school.
He said state Sen. Pete Campos, D-N.M., also the superintendent of the Las Vegas City Schools, was able to get $100,000 at the state Legislature to get all new equipment for the welding classroom.
