Welding Department Donation
By Marilee Petranovich
Our UNM-Gallup welding students are benefiting from a recent donation of over 200 feet of 8''pipe from Arguijo Oilfield Services, Inc. The donation, valued at over $4,200.00 will be used by students for educational and practical purposes. Joe Sanchez, instructor, said, "This donation is a truly uplifting blessing. The pipe comes to us with magnetism in it which is something I can’t buy for the students. This gives them a real life scenario to hone their skills. I'm so glad we were able to get this. In these trying economic times, we would not be able to afford these materials."
Arguijo Oilfield Services, a pipeline construction company, specializes in oilfield pipeline services and has offices in Odessa, Texas and Albuquerque, New Mexico.
