Happening in Our District
Students Win Gold at Leadership and Skills Conference
WHS had seven students compete at the Nebraska State Leadership and Skills Conference.  Two students took first place honors.  Ellie Furchert brought home the gold medal in Welding Art Sculpture.  She built a model of her pickup truck.  Besides building the model, she also had a face-to-face interview with judges and presented a notebook about the build process she took in its construction.   Zach Summers placed first in Action Skills.  He was required to present for about an occupation he is interested (in his case welding) and why he is interested in pursuing it after high school.  Along with his presentation, he assembled the basic type of welded joints and displayed some examples of his welding work.
