Midlands Technical College Building Construction team wins State Champion for second yearApril 20, 2023
The Midlands Technical College Building Construction Team (BCT) brought home the gold from the 2023 Skills USA State Championship.
Held in Greenville, SC from March 15-17, the team showed off their talents to all the other schools in attendance. As they made their way to the floor, the task was set — build an eight-by-eight mockup of a house with plumbing, electrical, and masonry. The team was proud to show the Palmetto state what Midlands Technical College is made of.
“The atmosphere this year was great,” said Building Construction Program Director Robbie Sharpe. “I am so happy and proud of the students that participated in the championship. They truly have bright futures ahead of them.”
Next stop: the national championship in Atlanta. To help get them there, Mungo Homes and the Michael J. Mungo Foundation are providing a $10,000 sponsorship to help cover costs associated with the trip.
“When you walk in to a space where people are gunning to take away your title as reining national champions, there is nothing like it. And the entire team is grateful to Mungo Homes and the Michael J. Mungo Foundation for their support again this year in helping us get to the national championship.”
