Students from the MMHS advanced welding class were able to go on a field trip where they toured 4 union halls (sheet metal workers, pipefitters, ironworkers, and boilermakers) and Weber State University's welding engineering department. It was a long day of over 10 hours and 200 miles but the students enjoyed using the equipment at several of the union halls, learning about post-high school options, and meeting with multiple experts in the field of welding and other trades. Thank you to everyone who made this field trip possible!
Nebo’s Maple Mountain High welding students did it again! National Champions for the second time. The National Champion SkillsUSA Welding Fabrication team consisted of Ladd Davis, Sam Christmas, and Wyatt Justensen with advisor Jared Massic.
Also competing at the national competition was Kagen Nelson. He competed in the photography competition and finished 11 of 52 high school students!
Congratulations to our very own, MMHS Welding Teacher, Jared Massic!
Karen Huntsman’s presented Mr. Massic with the Huntsman Award last week in his 3rd period class. Mr. Massic has built an amazing program for our students. He is a hard worker and willing to do all the extra stuff to make his program better and support student achievement!
It was awesome to watch Mr. Massic, his family, and his students as we all listed to Mrs. Huntman explain the award.

SPANISH FORK — If there's one thing the boss doesn't tolerate, it's laziness.
Shop teacher Jared Massic tries to instill this in his students.
"Commitment, dedication, hard work," Massic said.
Now those lessons are being applied by his students who are finalists in a national competition.
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.
The MMHS welding team beat out the rest and is considered the best of the best. We won 1st in the NATION! These young men did their best and represented us fantastically. Please congratulate Ben Warnick, Tosh Davis, and Tyler Christmas for winning nationals.
