EWC SkillsUSA students place at State Competition
The Eastern Wyoming College chapter of SkillsUSA finished up an outstanding year, at the Welding Fabrication Competition held in Casper, WY on April 15 and 16.
Bailey Martin, Guernsey, WY, 6th place and Trent Taylor, Big Piney, WY 1st place in the individual metal fabrication.
EWC’s three-member fabrication team of Nathan Ostrander, North Platte, NE; Cody Shrewsbury, Alliance, NE; and Trevor Sorg, Douglas, WY placed 1st.
The team welded a director’s chair from prints that were given to them. They had 6 hours to assemble and weld the project. This process allows the judges to check for safety, teamwork, weld process, and a finished product. The students had a really good showing of their talents.
“These students competed, and represented the EWC welding program well. “I am extremely proud of our students, they worked exceptionally hard, and accomplished a great deal of success,” said Stan Nicolls, SkillsUSA sponsor.
