All high schools in Nebo School District were well represented at the Nebo Welding Invitational held Jan. 22.


Welding winners were:  First place, Filimone Tukuafu, Spanish Fork High School; second place, Colton Harness, Maple Mountain High School; third place, Corbin Cox, Spanish Fork High School; fourth place, McKade Mecham, Spanish Fork High School; and fifth place, Grady Hall, Salem Hills High School.


The top three winners were awarded welding packages donated by Miller Electric and Lincoln Electric valued over $300 each. Wyotech also provided a $5,000 cash scholarship to the college of their choice. More than 20 generous companies sponsored the event.


All of the top welding competitors from each school will be representing Nebo School District at the annual SkillsUSA competition in April in the welding and welding fabrication categories.


In addition, Nebo School District’s welding collaborative group will be hosting a “Welding Expo” that will bridge the gap between education and career readiness on Saturday, April 23, at the Spanish Fork Fairgrounds from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Professional fabricators, sponsors, unions and students from across the state have been invited to attend.


There is a Drift Trike competition for the welding students as well as many more opportunities for the attendees to experience and realize the future of welding within our society. The expo will be free to the public.
