William Lauer Wins Silver at SkillsUsa Illinois Competition
We want to give a shout-out to an outstanding student welder from one of our local high schools!
William Lauer, a student at Hinckley-Big Rock High School & Indian Valley Vocational Center in Sandwich received a Silver Medal in Welding Sculpture at the SkillsUSA Illinois Competition held in Peoria, Illinois this past weekend.
The SkillsUSA Illinois State Leadership & Skills Conference 2022 was the state’s largest showcase of career and technical education from schools across the State of Illinois.
The SkillsUSA Illinois Championships recognizes career and technical education students who excel in their occupational areas, and spotlights leadership development activities that are such an integral part of the SkillsUSA program.
More than 5,000 individuals — including students, teachers, and business partners — participated in the multi-day event.
William will be attending the Advanced Welding Institute in Eagle River, Wisconsin this fall.
Congratulations, William! You are a true champion!
