Sulphur Springs High School Auto Technology students Jessica Snyder and Jackson Burnett competed in the state level after earning top honors in the District SkillsUSA Texas competition.
Snyder and Burnett earlier in the spring semester won first and second place honors in the SkillsUSA Texas District 5 Automotive Service Technology contest, for which they received awards from Gulf States Toyota, according to SSHS auto tech instructor Michael Rhodes. The competition includes comprehensive testing of 8 ASEs (testing areas).
The students then competed in the SkillsUSA Tx State level competition on April 20, with awards for that competition to take place on Friday, April 30, Rhodes also noted.
