Three female welding and fabrication engineering technology majors, who competed at SkillsUSA Nationals last summer, are included in the winter issue of SkillsUSA Champions. Erin M. Beaver, of Winfield; Joelle E. Perelli, of Bath; and Natalie J. Rhoades, of Weedville, were among the nearly two dozen Penn College students who traveled to SkillsUSA National Championships in Louisville, Kentucky, by virtue of their earlier gold medals in Pennsylvania competition. The magazine has a print circulation of about 25,000 educators and stakeholders, with a substantial digital circulation to student members.
