This year’s 2019 SkillsUSA State Conference took place April 5th - 7th at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi. Local TSPS Chapter 12 - Coastal Bend and TAMUCC/GISSO volunteered their time, knowledge, and equipment to organize, layout, judge and facilitate the Land Surveying SkillsUSA Texas state high school competition. Nine high schools consisting of 18 teams from all over Texas competed in land surveying activities such as: resume writing, industry standard uniform requirement, technical written exam, fieldwork (horizontal/vertical angles, taping, level loop), and fieldnote/sketches at the American Bank Center in downtown Corpus Christi.

Along with Awards from the SkillsUSA Competition, TSPS SkillsUSA Chair James Carr, put together additional prizes that included a “Getting Started With GPS Surveying” book, “Study Guide for Texas Surveyors” manual, TSPS logo Polo shirt, Texas Surveyor shirt and Mount Rushmore T-Shirts/bumper stickers all conveniently packed into a cooler. The instructor for each team also received a matching team shirt and a TSPS Tumbler cup.

Congratulations to the winners of the 2019 SkillsUSA Conference:

  • 1st Place: Construction Careers Academy Team G, Mathew
    Garcia, Sarah Maldonado, and Jonas Marcelle.
  • 2nd Place: Construction Careers Academy Team E, Andrew
    DeLeon, Ryan McLaughlin, and Milan Patel.
  • 3rd Place: Riverside Trades and Industry Team F, Jose Avila,
    Analys Negron, and Noah Silva.

James, Thanks for your efforts in leading the SkillsUSA activity for TSPS. These programs are essential for exposing our profession to young adults, and hopefully pulling a few into surveying. I wish more surveyors would find an opportunity or two to engage with the public, especially school age students, on a regular basis. Without opening the door to our profession, we'll never know and benefit from what potential future surveyor talent missed stepping into our world.
