At a recent State of Maine SkillsUSA Competition held on March 2nd and 3rd in Bangor, Maine, York County Community College (YCCC) was well represented with two competitors, one observer and two state officers in attendance.

YCCC’s two competitors both took home Gold honors in their specialties. Nicholas Fallon, a Precision Machining Technology major from Berwick, won Gold in Technical Drafting and Megan Doiron, an Architectural & Engineering Design major from Sanford won Gold in Architectural Drafting.

Both students have the opportunity to attend the National competition in Louisville, KY in June 2018. Nicholas will be fundraising to ensure he can complete at the national level, having previously competed at the high school level at nationals and winning 7th in the nation for technical drafting. He is excited to attend nationals and see if he can do one better at the collegiate level.
