On Wednesday, April 3, 2013, a local group of musicians entertained a crowd of fellow students when they competed and won first place in the Skills USA Competition at the Galt House in Louisville. Seniors Nathan Howard, Huston Howard, Daniel Tussey, and Junior Dylan "LZ" Blanton performed "Old Home Place," clinching the Gold the Group Category of the State Competition.
They earned their place in February by winning first place at the Regional Level at the Big Sandy Technical Center at Paintsville. Students PJ Lemaster and Andrew Francis also won first and second place, respectfully, in the Electrical Construction Wiring Category. They also competed at the state level in Louisville last week.
