SWIC trains the best

Congratulations to Greg Kersulis, of Waterloo, for finishing second in precision machining at the recent SkillsUSA national competition. Southwestern Illinois College machinists, representing Illinois, competed against other state champions in a multi-day hands-on test that duplicated the skills needed in their profession. SWIC has finished in the top three in the nation four times in the last four years.

Greg's performance is another example that SWIC is able to provide an affordable program that ranks with the best schools in the nation. Congratulations to him and SWIC.

Tom Ely
