5th Annual Welding Fix It Saturday

Maple Mountain High School SkillsUSA club needs your help to send its Welding Fabrication Team back to Louisville, KY for the national competition for the 5th year in a row. On March 24th, we took first place at the state level and were invited to compete among the top competitors in the country. In hopes to help with this cost, we would like to invite you to sign up and bring in anything you need to have repaired or re-welded or have a small project built. If you provide the material to fix your project, we will weld it back together for you.

Each student that competed in and crossed the finish line at Thursday’s track meet at Spanish Fork’s Maple Mountain High School was immediately given a medal while their teachers, family and friends cheered them on.

“I got first place!” one student said running up to someone on the sideline with his medal outstretched after competing in the 50 meter dash.
