LAREDO, Texas (KGNS) - When driving down San Bernardo, you might see a giant 'm' by Martin High School.
The new red creation is an emblem of the school put together by three welding students.
The emblem was an ongoing process for local students who not only used their welding skills but their creativity and generosity as well to leave a legacy of their own at the high school.
For Pedro, Angel and Bernie welding class is not only a time to learn but also a time to enjoy doing what they love.
The students came up with an idea to give back to the place that encourages them to learn every day.
The students decided to create a letter 'M' for the campus and they were able to put measurements together.
With their helmets, glasses and welding tools, the students worked diligently in class and after class.
After almost two months, their masterpiece was complete.
All of those part of it will always take pride in their accomplishment.
The welding class hopes their work will motivate future classes to do the same by creating their own designs and make a difference.
About 70 percent of the students who take welding at Martin High School go on to get their certification at LCC.
