Ozark Campus student medals at national competition

Arkansas Tech University-Ozark Campus is proud to announce that one of its students placed third at a national competition held last week.

Dustin Terrell of Fayetteville, an industrial control systems (ICS) major, received a bronze medal at the National SkillsUSA Championships held in Kansas City, Kans., June 24-28. Nearly 6,000 high school and post-secondary students from around the country were on hand, competing in contests that tested their work skills in a variety of categories. Terrell won bronze in the electronics technology competition, for which he won gold at the SkillsUSA Arkansas State Conference held in Hot Springs earlier this year. Ron Hutain, chair of the ICS program, said, “Dustin’s performance reflects the standards of excellence here at the Ozark Campus, and we’re very proud of him and his accomplishment.” At the end of this summer semester, Terrell will be awarded an Associate of Applied Science in Industrial Control Systems. Chief Academic Officer Bruce Sikes said, “On behalf of the Ozark Campus, it is a pleasure to recognize Dustin Terrell and Ron Hutain for their outstanding performance on a national stage. We feel that their accomplishment supports many of the other educational outcomes that are happening on our campus.”
