Tronox Assists Basic Academy Robotics with Donation

Tronox, a manufacturing plant in Henderson, recently donated $5,000 to benefit students in the robotics club at Basic Academy of International Studies.

The donation assisted the program by providing students with an extracurricular activity that will brighten their futures. Due to the generous donation and community support that Tronox provides, Basic Robotics Club now has back-to-back state championship wins in robotics to add to its list of achievements.

After 70 qualification matches last weekend, Basic’s Z team was undefeated and remained as the top seed going into the finals. The Basic Z team partnered with Basic’s A team and a team from Clark High School to crush every other opponent in the tournament. Basic’s Z team went 14-0, defeating top-ranked Cimarron High School in multiple matches, which is an unprecedented accomplishment at a state-level tournament.

Basic Robotics Club will now begin to prepare for the U.S. Open Robotics Championship that takes place early April in Iowa, as well as the VEX Robotics World Championship (High School Division) in Kentucky in late April. The team is currently fundraising to meet the costs for their travel expenses to the U.S. Open and VEX World Championships.

“It heartens me to see these students competing in national robotics competitions. I saw a need to drive STEM programs and thankfully was able to assist with that need,” said Rick Stater, Henderson plant manager at Tronox. “We are proud to help the programs succeed, and we enjoy being an integral part of these learning opportunities.”

8 News Now: Celebration held for local veterans

LAS VEGAS – They served our country selflessly and with bravery. On Saturday, Honor Flight of Southern Nevada held a special celebration for local veterans.

92-year-old Manuel Aronstein was one of the vets in attendance who is unable to take part in the traditional flight to Washington, D.C. He served our country in WWII.

“I was with the 29th division, which was a D-Day division and I had 100 combat days,” Aronstein said.

He was one of the many service members being honored at the Welcome Home event. The vets ranged in ages from 80 to 101.

“There a lot of Veterans in Las Vegas, a heck of a lot, especially from the Air Force because the base is right here,” said Jerry Pressman, veteran of the Korean War.

The event gave vets a chance to unite and swap stories of their days of service.

“It’s nice to know that there are still people alive who are close to my age that we can still talk about our experiences,” said Aronstein.

It also gave the community the opportunity to say thank you.

“It’s that you’re appreciated for the service you were in, the time that you were in,” Pressman said.

Veterans also got to watch footage of a previous honor flight which took them through the war monuments in Washington, D.C.
