Eau Gallie High graduate wins National Skills USA gold medal... Brevard Business News Pg 3
"Justin Lawson, a recent graduate of Eau Gallie High School, took first place in the Marine Service Technology division at the annual National Leadership and Skills Conference in Kansas City, Mo.
Competing against the best students in the country, Lawson credits the valuable education he received at Eau Gallie High. He recognized the efforts of several teachers including Jeffrey Frahm, his marine–service technology instructor. “Mr. Frahm’s success in the marine industry and his motivation” were particularly influential. Last year, Eau Gallie High graduate Doug Sullivan, also one of Frahm’s students, won first place at the conference. “Underclassmen look up to Justin just as they did Doug the year before,” says Frahm. “It shows students who really enjoy the marine–service industry and want to learn the trade that they just need to apply themselves at Eau Gallie High. It’s exciting to watch so many of our students enjoy this class.” Lawson now plans to take advantage of his award valued at more than $30,000, which includes a full scholarship to a 60–week marine–certification program at Marine Mechanics Institute in Orlando, a Digital Diagnostic scan tool from Mercury Marine, a roll cabinet with a set of basic tools from Snap–On Tools, and software for fuel–injection systems from Volvo Penta.
Skills USA is a national organization serving more than a quarter–million high school and college students and professional members who are enrolled in training programs in technical, skilled and service occupations, including health care. Vol 24 No. 33 August 14, 2006
