From Joseph Bustos’ article on the Martinez News-Gazette website:

Alhambra High School has a few new trophies to show-off, thanks to the top-tier talent coming out of the school’s fantastic auto program.

Fifteen Alhambra High students competed in SkillsUSA California, a statewide career and technical education competition where participants showcase their career skills. AHS students competed in auto repair, diesel repair, welding, motorcycle repair, and technical math. The event took place in San Diego in early April.

The students are led by Automotive Technology Instructor Brian Wheeler, who speaks with pride about his what he calls “a great crop of students.” He calls it a “privilege” to spearhead the class for the last six years.

Sophomore Kevin Christensen took top honors by winning the gold medal for the state in diesel equipment technology, and will be moving onto the national competition in Louisville, Kentucky at the end of June. Christensen took home a $29,000 scholarship to UTI Auto Tech Institute as well.
