Two wired for success

On April 12, 2013, two Barnwell County Career Center electricity students competed in the South Carolina State SkillsUSA residential wiring event against 23 other students from around the state.
BCCC students Ross Kinard and Patrick Ricks both finished very well in the event. Ross Kinard finished second overall and Patrick Ricks finished tenth. Ross received a set of electrical tools and bag worth $300 and a check for $150 from SkillsUSA.
Kinard is a junior at Jefferson Davis Academy and Ricks is a senior at Barnwell High School. The electrical instructor is Ron Still.
