Four Computer Networking Technology (CNT) students competed at SkillsUSA Nationals in Kansas City, MO June 24th through June 28th.  These four students were the state champions in their respective categories.

LeRoy Matteson competed in Computer Maintenance Technology.  LeRoy was against the largest field of competitors with 24 post-secondary students.  Mickey Hefley also had over 20 competitors in his contest for Internetworking. 

Brandon Kearney, the CNT programs only freshman to compete, was against a field of 13 competitors and just finished out of the medal race with a 4th place finish.  Brandon will be returning next year to the state competition and should move on to do well again at the national competition. 

Wyatt Wood became the first National Champion for the CNT program.  Wyatt finished in 1st out of a field of 13 in Technical Computer Applications. Wyatt scored an overall score of 94.83%. 

All four students did an excellent job in their contests and deserve a lot of credit for the extra time they have invested outside of school to compete in these contests.  They represented Iowa Central in a positive manner and the CNT program is proud of them.
