After clinching first place gold medals at the California Skills USA competition last April in San Diego, four students from Beverly Hills High School finished in 8th place at the National Skills USA competition, held in Louisville, Kentucky on June 20-25. This is the first time BHHS has ever competed in the national competition, which brought together over 6,000 students from around the country to compete in over 50 career-related industry categories. Pictured (from left): Christian Ulirsch, Owen Lloyd, Bennett Gershwin, and Jonathan Gunn. Ulirsch (senior) and Gunn (Johns Hopkins-bound) designed, built, and tested a robot to detect explosives by video camera. Lloyd and Gershwin (both seniors) wrote and recorded a 3-minute radio program about the Orlando shootings.
