WeldOff at OTC

WeldOff ParticipantsThe FFA Welding Competition for the southern region, area 6, was recently held at Okefenokee Technical College. Area FFA chapters in the area performed one skill in the areas of shielded metal arc welding, oxyacetylene cutting, oxyacetylene brazing, or gas metal arc welding.  The students were judged on safety, correct set-up and procedure, appearance, and strength of the weld.  The event was organized by Von Peavy, southern region ag mechanics teacher.  Mr. Peavy said, “We once again appreciate the help of the outstanding Okefenokee Technical College staff and the use of their excellent facilities. We look forward to a long working relationship.”

Judges for the competition were Jody Kemp, Reggie Beasley, Von Peavy, Doug Furman, Melvin Thompson, and Dr. Larry Allen.
