Local businesses stepped in to make sure 115 JTED Construction students, representing 7 high schools, could compete in the recent SkillsUSA Regional competition at Catalina Magnet High School.
Charles Gallagher, who has taught construction for both the Tucson and Sahuarita school districts, coordinated the event. He says 15 businesses donated more than $10,000 in supplies and man hours.
Winners of the event will advance to the State competition in Phoenix on March 29.
