SCC student from Oak medals at National Skills USA

Hwy 136 Association will sponsor Trail of Treasures


SCC student from Oak medals at National Skills USA
Southeast Community College students were among those to place in the top 20 at the National SkillsUSA competition. Four SCC students placed in the top 20 in their categories at the conference held this summer in Louisville, Ky.
The four SCC students who received medals or finished in the top 20 were John Shaw, Stamford, second place, motorcycle service technology; Levi Thomlison, North Platte, third place, welding; Spencer Schoof, Oak, eighth place, CNC technician; and Courtney Cuddeford, Hastings, 14th place, welding sculpture.
Dan Zabel, instructor and co-chair of SCC's welding technology program, and Randy Koch, instructor in SCC's precision machining and automation technology program, accompanied the students.
Shaw's second-place finish earned SCC a CVO Softail Deluxe motorcycle, donated by Harley-Davidson Motor Co. Each year, Harley-Davidson donates a motorcycle to the school represented by the first, second and third place finishers in the motorcycle service technology category at the national event. SCC will use the bike as a training aid in its motorcycle, ATV and personal watercraft technology program. Two years ago SCC had the third-place finisher in the category and received a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
