Polyvance to Help Send Student to SkillsUSA National Conference

Polyvance announced that it is making a donation to help Luis Rodriguez, a first-place winner at the 2019 Alabama SkillsUSA Automotive Refinishing Competition, attend the SkillsUSA National Conference.

Polyvance announced that it is making a donation to help Luis Rodriguez, a student at the Earnest Pruett Center of Technology who won first place at the 2019 Alabama SkillsUSA Automotive Refinishing Competition, attend the SkillsUSA National Conference June 24-28 in Louisville, Ky.

Polyvance has been promoting plastic repair in vocational-technical schools for the past several years. Over the years, plastic repair has grown in schools, and more instructors are realizing the importance of nitrogen plastic welding. In 2018, nitrogen plastic welding became a scored part of the SkillsUSA national competition. Kurt Lammon, president of Polyvance, brought 20 6085 nitrogen welders to the national competition for the competitors to use. Polyvance believes SkillsUSA is a great way for students to learn skills that will secure them steady, in-demand jobs.

State winners from around the country will compete in the SkillsUSA National Conference to try to earn a national title in their category. This will be the ultimate test of Rodriguez’s skills. At the competition, Rodriguez will have the opportunity to showcase his skills on a national stage and gain exposure among industry leaders. The price for each student to attend the conference can be costly. A student must factor in travel expenses, lodging, meals and entertainment into their budget. Polyvance is proud to make this donation to help reduce the cost of Rodriguez’s trip, and encourages others in the industry to support SkillsUSA and the growth of trade skills in students.
