WPHS Welding Students Excel at SkillsUSA State Leadership and Skills Conference

Woodland Park High School (WPHS) welding students have once again proved their mettle at the recent SkillsUSA State Leadership and Skills Conference. The three-day event was held on April 4, 5, and 6 in Pueblo, CO, and it brought together the most talented welding students from across the state.

We are proud to announce that our students excelled in the competition, winning several top honors. Jarrett Freed has emerged as the State Champion in Technical Welding, showcasing his mastery of the technical aspects of welding.

Moreover, Jakob Brooks, Brayden Salem, and Cameron Spann have all been crowned State Champions in Welding Fabrication. Their ability to design and construct complex welded structures in a limited time frame is a testament to their exceptional welding skills and dedication.

In addition, we are thrilled to share that Elexis Gallagher took the 3rd place spot in Welding Sculpture. Her artistic vision and technical expertise were fully displayed in her welded sculpture, impressing the judges and earning her a place on the podium.

At WPHS, we take pride in our welding program and strive to provide our students with the skills, knowledge, and opportunities they need to succeed in the welding industry. The Woodland Park School District and community are proud of our students’ success at the State Conference! These impressive accomplishments are a testament to the hard work and dedication of our welding students, as well as the support of our exceptional welding instructor, Mr. Gary Adamson. Congratulations, Panthers!
