Nick Og­gerli, a stu­dent at Char-Lan District High School in Wil­liamstown, won a bronze medal in in­di­vid­ual car­pen­try at the Skills On­tario Com­pe­ti­tion in Toronto re­cently.

This was the third time he had made it to the provin­cials, but the first time he had medaled. He com­peted twice pre­vi­ously in the fourman car­pen­try event. “It feels re­ally good and I’m happy it worked out,” said Nick. The Grade 11 stu­dent at­trib­uted his suc­cess to stay­ing fo­cused on the task at hand, which was to build a de­tailed dog house.

“I stud­ied the plans, stayed fo­cused and tried not to look around me at what oth­ers were do­ing and just think about how I would do it,” he said. He hopes to at­tend Alqon­quin Col­lege af­ter grad­u­a­tion for car­pen­try and to be­come a framer.
