UACCM Students Take Home Gold, Other Awards at SkillsUSA

16 students from the University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton competed against their peers in the state SkillsUSA competition at the Hot Springs Convention Center April 10-11, bringing home three gold, three silver, and three bronze medals. 

Logan Killer of Dover, Roberto Guevara of Dardanelle, and Allan Liesche of Damascus all won gold in their respective categories: technical drafting, collision repair technology, and architectural drafting. The two-day event comprised several other competitions, including welding, welding fabrication, pipe welding, and automotive refinishing technology.

“When a student wins gold at the state competition, they are eligible to attend the national competition, which will be held in Louisville, Ky. this year,” Kristen Leger, a UACCM drafting instructor and SkillsUSA advisor, said. “We’re extremely proud of all of our competitors and we wish them well at the national competition.”
