HEVNER-DENISEI have been a welder since I graduated high school in 2000. I worked in industry for 8 years building things big and small. Since then I've been privileged to teach young men and women the art of welding.

During high school, I completed the career pathway for welding. I began my career in welding right after. I spent 8 years in industry at 3 different fabrication shops before applying to become a teacher. I completed the Utah State Office of Educations ARL (Alternative Route to Licensure) program to earn a Level II teaching license.     "I am incredibly passionate about life, wellness, and ultimate happiness.

I tell myself this daily: "Be kind, compassionate, and love wholeheartedly. Find peace and serenity in all you do. Work hard, play hard, do what makes you happy."          


MARCH 2017:

12 students in Welding competed in 9 different competitions at SkillsUSA this year. Our competition categories were;

  • Welding - Zane DeJulis
  • Welding Fabrication - Ian Ashworth, Pearce Zeidner, Tylor Milne
  • Welding Sculpture - Obed Rodriguez, Cole Horton
  • Job Interview - Jakob Bates
  • Job Skill Demonstration A - Aliza Queensberry
  • Job Skill Demonstration Open - Brighton Summers
  • Action Skills - Gavin Hertig
  • T-Shirt Design - Max Cowley
  • Pin Design - Lilly Togisala

Gavin Hertig (Highland) won Gold Medal in the Action Skills competition. Due to technical difficulties, SkillsUSA has not been able to upload all of the competitors scores, only the medalist. I'm not sure of the placements of everyone else, but I am super proud of these kids and their ability to demonstrate their skills and knowledge learned here in welding. Also, I am now a member of the State Board of Directors for SkillsUSA. I'm honored to be a part of this board. SkillsUSA makes great things happen for our kids.
