This weekend Ganado Ag Mechanics competed in the Texas High School Welding Series at the 8th Annual Cypress FFA Welding Contests Saturday January 16. We had three students placed in the contest on their levels of the contest, these students are as follows: Michael Bubela, Fabian Almeda, and Angel Almeda
Michael Bubela, placed 3rd overall in the level 1 welding contest, placed 3rd overall in the cutting contest. He also received a $750 scholarship to Ocean Corp. if he decided to attend their college to become an underwater welder. I believe he will be receiving an invite to their college soon where he will be allowed to actually put on a diving suit and get in the tank and weld underwater.
Angel Almeda placed 27th overall in the level 1 welding contest and passed a visual as well as an x-ray on his weld which gave him a welding certificate.
Fabian Almeda placed 28th overall in the level 1 welding contest and passed a visual as well as an x-ray on his weld which gave him a welding certificate.
All in all it was a great contest all 9 students who competed at the contest had fun and competed to the best of their abilities just did not have their day when it came to the weld. If you see any of the students who competed please congratulate them on just going and trying their best. A lot of the things that they do at the contest are not easy and I am trying to challenge them to be better and not just rely on their natural skill. Also here are a few pictures of everyone competing that I took over the weekend.
