NE State Leadership and Skills Conference
Westside had 7 students compete at the Nebraska State Leadership and Skills Conference.  Over 1,700 secondary and post secondary students were members this year in Nebraska. 

Ellie Furchert brought home the gold medal in Welding Art Sculpture.  She has built a model of her Chevrolet 4x4 pickup.  Besides building the model, she also had a face-to-face interview with judges, and had to present a notebook of the build process she took in its construction.  

Zach Summers also brought home the gold in his contest, Action Skills.  He was required to present for 7 minutes about an occupation he is interested in.  Zach presented to three Air National Guard members about why he has enjoyed Welding, and why he is interested in pursuing it after high school.  Along with his presentation, Zach had assembled the basic type of welded joints, and had some examples from the welding courses he has taken while at WHS.
