Regional champions from all over the state traveled to Tulsa on Sunday, April 15th, for the State SkillsUSA Conference. Contestants competed in both job skills contests and leadership contests. Kiamichi Technology Center-Atoka had a standout student who placed in both competitions.
Adam Jobe, Antlers High School, placed 1st in the Construction contest, advancing him to the National SkillsUSA competition this summer in Kansas City, MO. Adam is a second-year high school student, under the instruction of Jim Marley at KTC-Atoka.
Jobe said he was prepared for the competition because Marley had taught him to use trigonometric ratios to make calculations easier. Adam also competed in the leadership contests, in the area of Job Interview, and was invited to the conference stage to receive his 2nd place, silver medal. KTC Academic Center Instructor, Tammi Stephens, coached Adam in this competition, preparing him for his interview as well as helping with his resume.
