UBTech Intercampus Contest Results

A regional SkillsUSA Competition recently took place at the Vernal Uintah Basin Tech campus. The Automotive, Welding, and Carpentry programs from both campuses competed to showcase the skills they developed as local industry served as judges and donated prizes. The competitions had welders competing individually in two divisions: beginning and advanced. The Automotive students went head to head. The Carpentry students competed in two-man teams which included both secondary and adult students. In welding, the first place winner in beginning was Treven Timothy. For the advanced division it was Dalton Van. The Automotive winner was McKinlee Thacker. The secondary Carpentry winners were Austin Olson and Masen Holmes while Jubal Myore and Julianna Queacut won for post-secondary students. Just for fun and not associated with the SkillsUSA Competition was a CDL competition with Jace Prather taking the 90-degree backing and Pete Butcher taking first for pre-trip evaluation. Winners will go on to the state competition.

Kristin never planned to work in news radio but has thoroughly enjoyed being part of the news team at KVEL. Her love of literature and writing developed in high school which led her to study English Literature and Technical Writing at BYU. She received her BA in English from BYU in 2005 and studied at UVU in Orem for 2 semesters to become a Certified Technical Writer in 2006. Two months after completion she began her dream job of being a stay-at-home mom.  As mother of 2 energetic kids, she began writing from home for the KVEL news team in 2011 and considers it the perfect fit as a full time mom and part time writer.
