By Rosalind Russell – Funding supports from international manufacturing firm Tenaris, which has an office based in Sault Ste. Marie, will see improvements made to welding programs in all of the secondary schools with the Algoma District School Board.

The board’s communication manager Fran Walsh says Tenaris has donated $88,500 through the CWB Welding Foundation as an investment in “Sparking Success” topping off a joint overall investment of $450,000.

She says all nine of ADSB’s secondary schools including Elliot Lake Secondary, Algoma Secondary in Desbarats and W. C. Eaket Secondary in Blind River have received funding to upgrade their welding machinery and equipment, thanks to the investment.

Walsh adds Tenaris President in Canada Ricardo Prosperi and Joe Saundercook, Manager of Fund & Partnership Development with the foundation saw their funding dollars in action as they toured a manufacturing class in Sault Ste Marie on Monday where they made the funding announcement.
