LBCC Welding Fabrication Team Wins First at Oregon Skills USA

Linn-Benton Community College’s Welding Fabrication team took first place at the Oregon Skills USA competition held in Milwaukie last week.

Team members include Tim Burns, Matt Perry, Andrew Gustafson, Morgan Gordon, Coury Gagne, and Jeff Robinson. The team also had first- and second-place winners in the welding competitions, with Gordon in MIG welding and Gagne in TIG welding taking first places, and Robinson taking second in the general welding competition.

Each team had to design and draft a project, then submit their drawings to the Skills USA technical committee. Finished projects were checked against the team’s drawings for accuracy.

The LBCC Welding Fabrication team is now eligible to compete in the national Skills USA competition in Kansas City in June.

The fabrication team will be fundraising to help offset the cost of the trip to Kansas City. If you would like to make a donation to the team’s trip, contact LBCC welding faculty Fred Stuewe at 541-917-4581.
