Fourteen Estacada High School students took home honors at the 29th annual Clackamas Regional Skills Competition last week at Clackamas Community College.

The Estacada students were honored in nine out of the dozens of academic and technical skills categories on Thursday, Feb. 22.

Estacada's honorees included: Art, Mike Mosley, 3rd place, Whitney Moore and Noah Cotter, honorable mention; spelling, Megan Simpkins, 2nd; technology, Ben Enebo and Greg Baty, 1st; accounting, Larissa Hammond, 3rd; auto mechanics, Hector Barba, 3rd; Microsoft Excel Office XP, Brandi Lekberg, 2nd; entry-level welding, Kyle Williams, 2nd, and Casey Munter, 3rd; intermediate welding, Jacob Stein, 1st, and Anthony DiNapoli, 2nd; and advanced welding, Michael Adamson, 2nd.

The Regional Skills Competition, a collaboration between CCC and the Clackamas Education Service District, brings together high school students from throughout the county for a day of skills competition in a wide range of subjects from accounting to welding.

High school seniors who plan to attend CCC can get a head start on their college education through the Senior Incentive program during Skills Day. Seniors who attend a 30-minute information session and take placement tests can earn a four-credit tuition waiver.

All Skills Day winners receive tuition waivers worth 12 credits at Clackamas Community College to use toward their future studies.
