WARREN COUNTY, Ky. (WBKO) -- The best of the best students in our region gathered today to compete.
Students who have excelled in their careers and technical learning, participated in the regional SkillsUSA competition. The competition took place at the Warren County Area Technology Center.
Even some former students came by to judge the competition.
"It's a real honor to come in here and actually be able to judge it," said Jacob Hadden. "Before I even came to this school, I didn't know anything about welding at all, and they really set me up and gave me the knowledge I needed to be successful. Without them I would have none of this."
Hadden is now at Western Kentucky University studying engineering on a full ride. Students on Friday competed in mechanical work, construction, welding, information technology among other categories.
The winners from Friday will attend state in Louisville.
