Tyler Wilson, a senior at Grant County High School, won third place at the state SkillsUSA competition April 6-9 in Louisville.

Wilson used the auto body repair skills he learned as a student at Boone County Area Technology Center in Hebron to win the Northern Kentucky Regional SkillsUSA competition in February, where he was awarded a $6,000 scholarship to Ohio Technical College in Cleveland, Ohio.

The regional win qualified Wilson to compete at the state level, where he was awarded another $6,000 scholarship.

“I focused on what I had to do, and I just went with it,” Wilson said.

Wilson is the son of Bill and Trudy Wilson of Dry Ridge. He will begin classes at Gateway College in August.
