Sculpting success for SkillsUSA

Follow along as Pennsylvania College of Technology welding student Erin Beaver crafts an amazing entry for the 2019 SkillsUSA welding sculpture competition. From her tentative first steps in October to June’s award ceremony, Beaver’s journey is chronicled in a new video on the college’s YouTube channel. No matter the results of the competition, she proves that she is a tomorrow maker. “If you can imagine it, you can do it,” Beaver says. With that philosophy and her remarkable talent, what a tomorrow it will be for her!


JD Mather,

Very talented!

Ed Thompson,

Wowzers! Home run right out of the box! Awesome accomplishment for you, young lady. Art is very subjective for everyone, but one look at this and you know what it represents. From “thought” to actuality, great accomplishment. Keep up the good work. You picked the right school to learn from, too. Kudos to everyone who helped you, and are teaching you the skills to move forward with your own future. Great job!

Lenore Penfield,

All three of Erin’s award-winning sculptures are amazing and are currently on display in downtown Williamsport at the Visitors Bureau in the Chamber of Commerce building!

S. Hughes,

Awesome, Erin! Your creative talents make you one badass woman!
