Souderton man among medalists in National Vocational Competition

Three Pennsylvania College of Technology students were among the medalists at SkillsUSA's 47th annual National Leadership and Skills Conference held June 19-24 in Kansas City, Mo.

Placing third in their respective events were Micah E. Hoover, Souderton, Welding; Aaron C. Dressler, Mount Pleasant Mills, Automotive Refinishing; and Lewis D. Robinson, Bellefonte, Culinary Arts.

Hoover, seen at center in the photo, is a welding and fabrication engineering technology student. Lewis D. Robinson is at left and Aaron C. Dressler at right.

Their bronze medals bring to 27 the total number of Penn College students who have placed in the top three spots in national competition over the years. Placing fourth in Collision Repair was Owen R. Boyle, of Bloomsbury, N.J.

Faculty advisers for the college's SkillsUSA participants are Roy A. Klinger, instructor of automotive technology, and Edward L. Roadarmel, assistant professor of drafting and computer aided design.

SkillsUSA is a national nonprofit organization of more than 300,000 teachers and students -- high school and postsecondary -- who are preparing for careers in trade, technical and skilled service occupations.
