(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.)— More than 60 Hillyard Technical Center students advanced to the SkillsUSA state competition

"Usually the judges are actual community members and business owners that are seeing students that are actually applying the knowledge they are taught," HTC SkillsUSA lead adviser Patrick Graham said. "They get to see that and see what's coming out in the industry when they graduate to see the qualifications these students have."

Hillyard students brought home 23 gold medals, 20 silver medals and 30 bronze medals. 

The SkillsUSA State Contest will be held in Linn, Mo. on April 4-6 and 54 of the plaing students will then compete for a spot at the National Level in Louisville, Ky.

After Monday's system moves away, we will see the return of sunshine and even warmer temperatures for Tuesday. Highs Tuesday will likely be in the lower 60s. The warm weather continues until the next chance for widespread rain that comes late Wednesday into Thursday morning as another cold front pushes through the area. We'll have cloudy skies by Thursday afternoon, but it will be much cooler with highs in the mid 40s.
