High school students traveled from across Texas to compete in several welding events at the Skills-
USA State competition April 1 at Windward Campus. 

According to Assistant Welding Professor Jose Cortez, the event is a great opportunity for Del Mar to spark interest in high school students by allowing them to see and use the college’s facilities.

“Hosting the state event lets schools all over Texas know what Del Mar is doing,” Cortez said. “If they get exposed to this kind of welding and we talk to them we sometimes do get students who register at our program.”
