The SkillsUSA Arizona State Championships took place April 3--4, showcasing the state’s trade, technology and service high school and college students.

David Melian, automotive collision instructor at West-MEC Northeast Campus in Phoenix, AZ, entered some of his students in both the Refinish and Body Repair competitions.

 

“I am proud to say I had my first female student, Nathalie Marin, take first in Refinish and bring home the gold,” Melian stated. “We also had Bryson Rush take third in Refinish and Anthony Reyes finished third in Body Repair. They worked very hard to prepare for state.”

 

According to Melian, Marin will go on to represent Arizona in the Refinish competition at Nationals in Louisville, KY, in June.
