GALVESTON, Texas (AP) - Some college students in Southeast Texas have started a class project to improve the look of a cemetery while learning about welding.

The Galveston College students are targeting Broadway Cemetery and its rusted, bent gates.

The Galveston County Daily-News (https://bit.ly/1DHxHHx ) reported Saturday that members of the introduction to welding class will design and fabricate new iron gates.

Instructor Evan McClimans says it gives students a chance to work on a project that can actually be seen and benefit Galveston.

The project is also a competition for the estimated 30 students. Each must come up with a design and blueprint. A winner will be chosen, and the class will work together to fabricate new gates to the cemetery going back to at least the 1830s.
