Andrew Mullis, a senior at South Rowan High School, recently won the statewide Skills USA competition in masonry.
Career and technical students participate in the SkillsUSA Championships in a number of different fields. Contests begin locally and continue through the state and national levels.
Mullis said 63 masonry students from all over North Carolina competed at the statewide round. He now will represent North Carolina in the national competition, which will be held June 24-28 in Kansas City, Mo.
According to the Skills USA website, masonry competitors must build a composite brick and block project in a six-hour period. It includes components of the most frequently used details in residential construction. The students are judged on their ability to meet industry standards and quality, as well as a written exam.
Mullis’ masonry teacher, Ronnie Miller, said this is the first time in 16 years that he has taught a state winner. He said it’s been much longer than that since South Rowan High School has seen a Skills USA masonry champion.
A Cannon School rising senior is among 610 high school students attending North Carolina Governor’s School this summer. Aidan Smith of Mooresville is studying English during the five-week session, which is being held through July 20 on the campus of Meredith College in Raleigh.
