The Williamsburg Technical College Welding department in cooperation with other areas of the College held their inaugural welding rodeo on Saturday, September 24.
With four teams in play, the day started out with a "scrap dive" where team members rushed into an assortment of metal forms and types and decided which ones would be most beneficial to their needs to create a sculpture in the eight alotted hours. Participating teams included Palmetto Synthetics welders, WTC welders, Florence Darlington Technical College welders, and WTC machine tool welders.
WTC Welding instructor Sam Gardner planned and executed the event. He and his coplanners sought and received significant sponsorship and received donated scrap metal from various partners from the area.
The theme of the day's sculpture contest was "American Patriotism." Winners selected by a secret panel of art-savvy judges from the Williamsburg County area were Florence Darlington Technical College, first place; WTC welders, second place; and Palmetto Synthetics welders, third place. All sculptures were purchased through open bid by the public.
The Practical Nursing Class of 2016 completed their program of study in August and were recently pinned at a ceremony in their honor. Guest speaker for the event was Kelly Lawson, RN, MSN, Chief Nursing Officer at Williamsburg Regional Hospital. Students were also awarded according to ranking, election to offices, and other superlative accomplishments. Pictured are: (Front row, left to right) Laura Matthews from Lake City (fundraising secretary); Angeline Clark from Fork; Roxie Biering from Coward (clinical excellence award); Tammy Pringle from Florence (fundraising vice president; Ebony Simmons from Moncks Corner; (second row) Taylor Stone from Lake City (class secretary and student representative for admission committee; Brandi Lynch from Lake City (fundraising president); Quilla Williams from Florence; Cindy Bolen from Manning (class vice president, student representative for teaching learning committee, and departmental achievement; (back row) Shavaughn Fulton from Salters (second highest overall grade point average); Dawn McCutcheon from Olanta (most professional growth); Sarah Bostic from Florence (class president, highest overall grade point average, second highest NCLEX predicator, and student representative to curriculum committee): and Carla Moore from New Zion (highest overall assessment technologies institute score and highest NCLEX predicator).
