According to Michael Reddin, SKILLSUSA sponsor: "Trevor competed in the SKILLSUSA state conference over the weekend in Corpus Christi. They only award the top 3 positions at the ceremony and all we know is that he did not place in the top 3. Hopefully we will know where he placed in the next couple of days. The competition itself was quite large with 10,000 plus participants and as you can imagine it was a little chaotic navigating around all the facilities. Aside from the skills competition, we all enjoyed walking around and looking at all the exhibits. We walked several miles on the beach, ate lots of good food and toured the USS Lexington. Overall, I think the trip was a great experience for us all."
