Fleming Students Shine at Skills Ontario


Peterborough, ON (May 5, 2023) – Fleming College students took home medals in multiple categories this week during the annual Skills Ontario competition at the Toronto Congress Centre.

The Skills Ontario competition pit some of the best skilled trades and technology students from across the province against each other during two and a half days of competition.

The event is also a chance for students to put their learned skills and knowledge to the test in a high-pressure environment while they’re up against the clock, as family, friends and potential future employers cheer them on.

Joel Tucker, a recent graduate from the Carpentry Apprenticeship program, nabbed a Bronze medal in the Individual Carpentry competition.

Owen Mitchell, a graduating student in Fleming’s Welding and Fabrication Technician program, took home a Silver medal in the Welding category.

Fellow Welding and Fabrication graduate Kenzie Backus scored a Bronze medal in the Metal Fabricator competition.

Fleming students weren’t the only ones recognized for their innovation and creativity this week. Fleming’s high trafficked booth was awarded first place for its unique design and interactive displays, educational value provided, relevance to skilled trades and technologies and the overall memorable experience. The award resulted in a trophy, free booth at the 2024 Career Exploration Showcase, and recognition in the Skills Ontario Newsletter, Summer 2023.

Fleming College is proud of all that our students, staff and faculty accomplished this week.
