Brandon Smith – displays great skills in welding competition.

Please congratulate freshman Brandon Smith for his outstanding performance at welding fabrication held at Ike’s welding shop last Thursday. Brandon and Reid Whaley were going to compete as a team but Reid got sick Wednesday night and was unable to compete in regionals.

I let Brandon compete anyway just to see how he would do, he got 755 points out of 1000 points That’s unheard of for a freshman. – Gary Kurp

The next closest score was 624. Reid is a junior with more experience and more skilled at welding and I have no doubt that they could have been first place.
