Bevill State's Jordan Moore qualifies for national Skills USA competition
June 25, 2012
Bevill State student Jordan Moore placed first in the state at the Skills USA competition in April. His win qualifies him to represent Alabama at the Skills USA national competition this summer.
Moore’s first place finish in the Motorcycle Service Technology competition will take him to Kansas City, MO in June where he will compete against more than 4,500 career and technical education students in the Skills USA National Competition.
In addition to Moore’s win, a group of skilled Bevill State students were also successful at the state conference by placing in the top ten in their respective competitions. Drafting students Nicole Cook and Matt Fannin placed fourth in Technical Drafting and 10th in Architectural Drafting. Matthew Lamar and James Turner claimed the sixth and eighth spots in Welding while Diesel Technology students Eleazar Salazar and John Hinson placed second and fourth. Federico Navarro Carrillo placed fourth in Automotive Service Technology. All of these students were tested on their speed, skill and knowledge in their fields of expertise and competed against both time and other contestants.
