LCCVI welders to compete in Skills Ontario provincials

Tye Burr and Carson Cummings

For the first time ever, two LCCVI students are heading to the Skills Ontario provincial competition.

Tye Burr, a Grade 12 student won first place in the welding competition. Carson Cummings, also in Grade 12, placed third.

At the regional competition at Fanshawe College in London, Burr and Cummings receive a blueprint with drawings and welding symbols. They are to interpret the weld drawings, tack up their structure, and weld it using the welding symbols and scope, according to Johnny Dawson, LCCVI’s Welding Instructor.

“This achievement speaks volumes about their dedication, hard work, and the quality of education they have received at LCCVI,” says Dawson.

The pair will travel to Toronto May 7 for the provincial competition.
