Another notable isbrthat two brothers, Ladd and Tosh Davis, were both National Gold Medal Championsbr– Ladd Davis is on Maple Mountain’s High School National Gold team and ToshbrDavis is on the Utah State University Eastern National Gold team.

brbr

The competitionbrconsisted of building donation boxes that were detailed and complicated. Out ofbr75 teams, only ten teams completed the challenge in the allotted seven-hourbrcompetition time.

brbr

The welded boxesbrwill be used by WaterStep to collect shoes to help micro-businesses inbrthird-world communities.

brbr

WaterStep also helpsbrprovide drinkable water to these countries through kits and proper training.

brbr

Just a bit ofbrinformation on these amazing students: Ladd Davis, Sam Christmas, and WyattbrJustensen won National Bronze last year and National Gold this year in the highbrschool division. Tosh Davis, Ben Warnick, Tyler Christmas (brother to SambrChristmas) won SkillsUSA National Gold as seniors (2017) and SkillsUSA NationalbrBronze as juniors (2016) at Nebo’s Maple Mountain High School.

brbr

This collegiate teambralso took National Gold last year so this makes Tosh Davis and Ben Warnick threebrtimes SkillsUSA National Champions.

brbr

The Maple Mountainbrwelding team is under the direction of Jared Massic. One side note is that thebrMMHS welding team was the only team that helped after the competition to helpbrtake down the entire competition set.

brbr

A committee memberbrfrom the National SkillsUSA Welding Fabrication approached Coach Massic andbrthanked him for all their help.
