Friday, June 28, 2013
The talented welding fabrication students of Parkside High School in Salisbury, MD prove once again that they are the best in the state of Maryland as they advance to the 48th National SkillsUSA competition to be held June 24-28 in Kansas City. The team consisting of Jon Gray, Trevor Klaverweiden and Daniel Churchill is led by experienced welding instructor, Biazzio Giordano Jr. General Refrigeration has often served as an internship sponsor for Mr. Girodano's talented students and this year decided to sponsor their quest for national recognition. "These are very bright students with a promising future. It is impressive what they can do at this age," said General Refrigeration vice president, Dave Hartig. "We are excited to sponsor them and their trip to Kansas City. I think they have a shot at a medal and know they have one at a bright career as welders."
