BBTC Welder Winners

BBTC Welders

The Taylor County School District would like to congratulate our BBTC (Big Bend Technical College) welders who competed in the American Welding Society’s (AWS) Regional Welding Contest on Tuesday, November 2, 2021, at the College of Central Florida Chiefland Campus.   All three of the BBTC welders competing placed in the top 4 places this year and BBTC won the competition.   For the past three years a BBTC welder has placed first in this contest due to the exemplary training and skills of our BBTC welders!    BBTC Director, Jodi Tillman, congratulated not only our welding students but their teachers Cecil Gainey and John Neal for providing the skills needed for our welders to win.


BBTC placed as follows:

1st place – Edwin Colon – winning a $1,000 scholarship and assorted welding equipment
