Some college students got a chance to show off their skills Saturday during the Utility Linemen Rodeo at Metropolitan Community College.
Forty students competed in six different events. Family and friends were invited out to watch.
Instructor Tim Bowling said, “When they came to us they didn’t even know how to climb poles and so they’ve come a long way. They need to show off what they’ve done.”
The MCC sponsored event was free and open to the public. There was an award ceremony afterwards.
