Special to The Leader

West Orange-Stark High School Career Center precision machine students competed in the District Skills USA competition at Lamar University recently. In the District Speed Skills Contest, student competitors are given a plan and must create a part on the metal lathe in a timed competition. WO-S Career Center students Kade Wheat, Colby Hudson, and Alex Bridwell swept the top places in the competition. Wheat and Hudson will advance to compete at State later this month.

Additionally, all WO-S Career Center precision machine students won blue ribbons on their student projects. Students are Roberto Artiga, Alex Bridwell, Colby Hudson, Randy Underwood, Michael Vines, and Kade Wheat. Colby Hudson’s project was awarded Best of. All WOS projects now advance to the State Skills USA competition in Corpus Christi.

Kade Wheat and Randy Underwood are Bridge City High School students who attend the WO-S Career Center. Carlo Paulino is the WO-S High School precision machine instructor.
