The SkillsUSA chapter of Slinger High School dominated at the District Competition in West Bend this last Tuesday. After a long day of school, these dedicated students competed in their technical fields during the afternoon and evening. However, the time spent there was incredibly worthwhile. Overall, a total of 18 medals were awarded and returned with the students to the high school – near nine o’clock at night.

Earning first place in their competitions were Kate Wallschaeger in Technical Drafting; Jeremiah Miller in Carpentry; Kevin Remmick in Advertising Design; Katie Meyer in Screenprinting; and Rachel Hau in Welding.  

Awarded second place were Justin Burns in Architecture; Morgan Duley in CNC Milling; Mariah Flynn in Job Skill Demo; and Tim Peters in Photography.  

Finishing in third place were Brett Darin in Architecture; Becky Green in Job Skill Demo; Madeline Horinek in Technical Math; Matt Mehl in CO2 Dragster; Nick Mergener in CNC Milling; Noah Schilling in Photography; and the team of Brady Hattori, Justine Horst, and Ryan Punko in Team Problem Solving.

Congratulations to Slinger SkillsUSA for an outstanding job at Districts. These students truly are working towards closing the skills gap present in our society and deserve such recognition.
