Skills USA has come and gone; it was a hard-fought competition for Mountain View High School. Bruins competing in categories such as, TV News Production, Digital Media, and Welding. The students did their best to impress the judges and try to reign supreme, like Mountain View is known for. The Bruins who managed to get on top in their category were Seniors, Joseph Meacham and Alexis Martinez, for the Radio competition.
For those who are unaware of what Skills USA is, here is a brief explanation. Everyone normally tends to see competitions for vocal performances, art, and for physical activities. But ‘Skills’ brings forth the opportunity for the individuals who have the skills for categories that wouldn’t usually have a competition for, such as, Public Speaking, Nail Care, and even Plumbing. The competition goes for two days at the SLCC Campus and schools from all over the state come to compete. The last day at the campus, there is an awards ceremony held for those who have placed in their categories.
Joseph Meacham and Alexis Martinez gracefully accepted their medals for 1st place and will be moving on to Nationals, which are held in Kentucky. MVHS is very proud of these hard-working Bruins and are excited to see them move on to Nationals. Joseph and Alexis have proven that MVHS is and forever will be the BEST.
