In November Our welding program has made it to the semifinals of a national welding contest. We wrote 3 essays on how our welding program "welds it forward" out of 250 essays we were chosen as one of 3 high schools for the semi finals. The schools were given the direction of "Weld it Forward", a box of random parts and a deadline. We have built our projects and sent them off to those in need in Mexico. But the majority of our vote comes from public voting starting the 16th of March.
Our FBLA club returned home from our state competition last night, and they did very well. 8 of our 10 competitors placed in the top 10 at state in 12 different events bringing home a total of 21 certificates! Several students have qualified for Nationals in Baltimore, MD this summer. If you see these awesome future business leaders in class or see them in the hallway, please tell them congrats.
