May Continues to Showcase His Skills Around the World

Scott May, a Port Huron High School graduate and former RESA TEC student, finished in 22nd place in the world for CNC milling at the WorldSkills Competition in Kazan, Russia. The competition took place August  22nd–27th and showcased trade skills from construction and building technology, creative arts and fashion, information and communication technology, and more. In his profile interview with World Skills USA, May said he loves that his skill allows him “to create nearly anything one can imagine.” He also said that the more one perfects skills in the trade, the more knowledge of things one has to create, and that’s what drives him to perfect his talents. May has been involved with SkillsUSA since he was a junior in high school. Through the rigorous training that goes into competing, he says he’s improved his soft skills as well as his technical skills. Last year, May won the national SkillsUSA title in CNC milling, representing St. Clair County TEC. At the bi-annual WorldSkills Competition this year, thirty-one young people from around the world competed in CNC milling at Kazan.
