Four TEC students earned medals at the 2019 National SkillsUSA Conference held last week in Louisville, Kentucky. Ryan Alexander from Marysville High School and Carter Spoutz from Memphis High School placed 1st in the nation, winning the gold medal in the Mechatronics (Engineering & Robotics) team competition.
Scott Pitt, a student from Port Huron Northern, won the silver medal in CNC Milling, and Dustin Cooney from Port Huron High School, won bronze in the CNC Technician category. Five others also represented TEC and the state of Michigan at the national event competing in electrical construction wiring, information technology services, and audio production. The SkillsUSA National Championships are a showcase for the best career and technical students in the nation, and the national event occupies a space equivalent to 16 football fields.
