Hazelton’s Larson takes third in skill competition

Kispiox Valley resident and Hazelton Secondary School student, Keifer Larson placed third in an auto service competition.

A few weeks ago, Kispiox Valley resident and Hazelton Secondary School student, Keifer Larson placed third in the Auto Service Competition at the  Northwest College in Terrace, March 9th.

There were seven students in total  in his competition and each competitor had to go to four different stations where there was an instructor for every one that tested their knowledge.

“They tested us to see how well we solved the problems and how much we knew about each section which was a part of a vehicle,” Larson shared.”

Since I was competing with people from the college it was pretty cool to get third place.”

With a passion for the trades, Larson said he hopes to attend next years competition as well as follow a career one day in the same field.

“I hope to do something with mechanics or a trade in the future but I picked auto this time as it was the one I knew the most about it,” he said.

“I will definitely go next year if I am allowed, it was a lot of fun.”
