WHS Student Places Third At SkillsUSA Competition, Wins Motorcycle For School

Watauga High School's Jacob Miller finished in third place at the SkillsUSA motorcycle competition.


Watauga High School’s Jacob Miller finished in third place at the SkillsUSA motorcycle competition.

From an article on the Watauga Democrat website:

Some competitions recognize hard work and accomplishment with trophies and certificates, but for Watauga High School’s Jacob Miller, recognition and reward came in the form of a motorcycle.

After taking home the top prize at the statewide North Carolina SkillsUSA motorcycle service technology competition, Miller went on to net a third place finish in the national contest that awarded the top three participants — of 50, one from each state — a brand new Harley-Davidson motorcycle for their school.

Miller’s bike made the trip back from the SkillsUSA competition in Greensboro to Watauga High School, where it will now lend invaluable hands-on experience to other WHS auto-tech students.
