Congratulations to Vancouver Community College (VCC) students on winning four medals in the Skills Canada 2021 Virtual National Competition held on Tuesday, June 15.

Students in the baking, autobody repair and car painting categories demonstrated outstanding performances and podium-finishes against competitors across the country.

Both VCC baking champions Noeka Nimmervoll (secondary) and Katie Rempel (post-secondary) earned the top titles following their provincial gold last month. Both competitors were required to produce a set of cakes and bonbons reflecting the theme “Enchanted Forest.”

Meanwhile, both autobody repair student Keagan Behiel (secondary) and car painter Emmett Thompson (secondary) produced stellar results with bronze and silver respectively.

We’re so proud of each student who took part in every level of this competition. Your pursuit of excellence, hard work, and perseverance have shone on the national stage. Well done!
