Three male winners at Skills USA State Conference

Several students in the Electricity Club and CNC/Tool & Die Club competed at the state level during this year’s Skills USA competition held in Madison, WI.  Students who participate in these competitions are dedicated and work hard to excel in their respective fields.

CNC/Tool & Die Club

Jeremiah Alderden, Matt Grady and Gus Jacoby participated as a team and placed 2nd in the Automated Manufacturing Technology competition.  This competition had two components with the first occurring on campus and the second occurring in Madison.  During the first part of the competition, students reverse engineered a part with an outside judge overseeing the process.  A few weeks later, while in Madison they had to take a written test to show their knowledge in the field.
