Red Deer student receives bronze medal at Skills Canada National Competition

Tristen Hatto competed against 13 provincial gold medal winners from across Canada

Earlier this week, Tristen Hatto, a Grade 12 student at St. Joseph High School, won a bronze medal at the Skills Canada National Competition. Hatto competed against 13 provincial gold medal winners from across Canada in Electrical Installations.

“When I won bronze I was ecstatic! Competing against provincial gold medal winners from each province/territory was an amazing experience and to place in the top three is very fulfilling,” said Hatto at St. Joseph High School.

“Tristen did so well to earn a bronze! His work was so neat that it was the most photographed finished product. All the devices worked and as usual, there was a very small point spread between the gold and bronze winners,” said Teacher, Leigh Smithson of St. Joseph High School.
