(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.

More hot and humid weather on the way for today with highs back in the upper 90s with some areas reaching triple digits. Use caution when spending time outside because heat index values will once again be in the triple digits for many. A cold front will start to approach our area tonight and stall to our north giving us a few chances for showers and thunderstorms overnight, however this activity will not be widespread. Temperatures will still be above average this weekend with highs in the 90s. A few lingering rain chances will continue this weekend, but much of the weekend will be dry. The cold front will move through the area early next week giving us some much cooler temperatures. High will be back down in the upper 70s and lower 80s to start off next week.
