 Two additional students qualified for national Skills competition but previous family vacation plans kept Cade Isom and Zach Jestings from competing in Additive Manufacturing in Louisville.

WP_DAWarren Poff also won state competition in Automotive Service as Auto Parts Specialist but was unable to advance since there is not a parts specialist competition at Skills USA nationals.

It was quite a successful year for students at NEACTC.  We are extremely proud of their dedication and expect continued success from these future leaders.

Congratulations and best wishes for the future!
