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.
