Palestine welders sweep state competitions
Friday, February 07, 2020
Palestine High School welding students took top honors at competitions in Fort Worth and San Angelo – two of the state’s biggest agriculture mechanics contests. The two FFA competitions are part of the so-called Majors – the largest agriculture mechanics shows in the state. Later in February, the young welders competed in San Antonio for hefty scholarships of up to $10,000 per student.
Students invested hundreds of hours in each project over the past 6 months. Many arrived at 7 a.m. and continued after school four days a week – as late as their instructors would allow.
