    In years past, teachers at the Madison County Area Technology Center may have had two to five high school students move on to the SkillsUSA Kentucky Leadership and Skills Conference, according to welding instructor James Mattox.

    The SkillsUSA Club has grown a lot in the past couple of years, said Mattox, and consists of students from Madison Southern, Madison Central and Berea Independent high schools.
    The state competition will test students’ abilities in several areas of technology, including welding, machining, auto mechanics, blueprint reading, electricity, carpentry and others.
