Tyler Wilson, a senior at Grant County High School who is also enrolled at the Boone County Area Technology Center in Hebron, has a passion for cars.
Wilson won a $6,000 scholarship to Ohio Technical College in Cleveland, Ohio, at the Northern Kentucky Regional SkillsUSA competition held Feb. 28 at Boone County ATC. He competed for three hours, working on mocked-up metal to simulate working on the body of an automobile.
“I didn’t believe it,” Wilson said of his win. “My parents were happy and amazed.”
