Caldwell County Schools’ TeamWorks team has placed
first in the Skills USA National Competition.
The team consists of Max Barlowe,
Marc Colvard, Lewis Foust and Billy McElyea. In addition to medallions, winners
will receive $1,000 worth of tools and equipment. The TeamWorks competition has
been in existence seven years, and the Caldwell County Schools’ Career Center
has won first place at the state level, allowing students to compete nationally
each year. The competition requires that a team of four build a project in two
days that demonstrates their preparation for employment in residential
construction. The Caldwell team earned the only perfect score on a
presentation. 45 teams participated in the annual event.
