A team of four students at West High School’s Academy of Business and Law earned double gold medals at the Skills USA Competition on Jan. 29 at San Joaquin Delta College.
Jose Alonso, Harpreet Boparai, Olga Garcia and Justin Spencer earned top medals in the entrepreneurship and community service project categories at the regional competition.
“Justin really carried the day,” said Amy Lowery, academy director. “The judges threw questions at them and Justin had the answers, with lots of backup from the entire team.”
The team, advised by business teacher Lynn Huggins, has qualified
to compete in the statewide championship April 28 through May 1 in San Diego.
