Walker Wins Bronze at Skills Ontario Competition
May 11, 2017 (Chesterville, ON) – A North Dundas District High School student has won bronze at the Skills Ontario Competition for the third straight year.
Grade 12 student Bobby Walker won the honour recently in the small powered equipment event at the 2017 competition, held last week at the Toronto Congress Centre. He medaled after an impressive performance in the six-station event, which challenged him to accomplish everything from completing an electrical circuit to identifying faulty or missing parts in a broken lawn trimmer and fixing it.
“It feels pretty good,” said Walker of his performance. “In a way it is satisfying to know that I haven’t gotten any worse over the years. I wish I could have performed better, but in the end I’m happy with it.”
Walker, who will graduate this year, plans to take a natural mechanical ability and apply it to an apprenticeship program to become a truck and coach diesel mechanic.
