Welding Thunder Gold: 4-peat for FHS team

The Flagstaff High School Welding Team won Arizona Welding Thunder for the 4th year in a row! The go-cart is on display in the cafeteria commons at FHS. Each year, Mike Rust has students compete for a spot on this team. Students have to have high marks in all of their classes and good attendance. Our students covet a spot on this winning team. 


During the competition, students have to work as a team, follow a blueprint and fabricate specific parts of the go-cart on site. They are judged on all of their welds and their ability to read and follow the blueprint.


Team members earning gold this year are:  Tim Dana (senior), Jacob Sansone(junior), Kody Kelley (junior), Leroy Horney (junior), Ryan Chaffin (junior) and Lance Smith (junior). The instructor/sponsor is Mike Rust. 


Congratulations to the FHS Welding Team for this achievement!
