Diversified Occupations Students are Champions at the ABC Craft Championships in Augusta
On Friday, November 20, over 70 Lake Region Vocational Center students attended the ABC Craft Championships sponsored by the Maine Homebuilders Association and held at the Augusta Civic Center.
Included in that group were three 8th graders who are enrolled in the Diversified Occupations Program at LRVC. These three competed in a short welding competition sponsored by the Phoenix Welding Company and placed second overall losing only to a team of seniors by 7 points. The prize for each student was a 75 piece tool set which was presented to them last week by a representative from Phoenix Welding.
