MJ&H Fabrication in Ponca City and Pioneer Technology Center (PTC) teamed up once again for the Fourth Annual Weld for Work Competition last week.

This competition aligns newly graduated Pioneer Tech welders with jobs available in their district.

First place went to Koby Wilson, POHI; 2nd place was Damon Smith, POHI; 3rd place Jonathan Arteaga, Blackwell; 4th place Trey Reese, Woodland; 5th place Bryce Gilliland, POHI; and 6th place Brody Spencer, Woodland.

MJ&H offered employment to the top three participants.
