Schwarzenegger visits the Venice High's School's printing facility
Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, on Saturday paid a visit to the Venice High's School's Super Shop 9. He visited the school during an ongoing open house held to celebrate its new $3 million printing facility. During his stay in the facility that went on for an hour or so, the muscleman, turned actor, turned politician was assisted by students as he tried his hands to print a Venice High School T-Shirt and to operate the facility's new four-color printing press.
Super Shop 9 has been the backbone of the Venice High's School's graphic communications program since 1956. One of the prime reasons why Schwarzenegger was invited was because of his support for Proposition 1D, the $20 billion bond measure to repair and upgrade public schools. In fact, the school received $1.5 million as a grant from the state government as part of Proposition 1D. Longtime Super Shop 9 instructor Art Lindauer played a big role in it.
