Kenora’s Quinn Hamlyn is a provincial silver medalist.
The second place finish comes after he competed in Canada's largest skilled trades and technology competition in Toronto, where he impressed with his carpentry skills.
His fellow Beaver Brae students, Alexis McGrath and Clark Boucha also competed in the National Skills Competition. McGrath competed in the hospitality field in baking, and is mentored by Chef Tara Pitre. Mentored by Pete Zilinski, Boucha was in the transportation division working with small engines.
Hamlyn is still awaiting the news of his selection into the National Skills Canada Competition.
“Taking place May 7-9, 2018, the Skills Ontario Competition is Canada's largest skilled trade and technology competition.
The Skills Ontario Competition offers a unique opportunity for top students to demonstrate that they are the best of the best in their field. Over the two and a half days, they turn the heads of their educators, family, friends and prospective employers. Winners are awarded with Gold, Silver or Bronze medals - and some with monetary awards, too - and the opportunity to compete at the Skills Canada National Competition. From there, competitors could be headed to a WorldSkills Competition.”
