College hosts annual competition
Clackamas Community
College will play host to an ar­
ray of high school students
from around the county on
Feb. 23 at the fourth annual
Clackamas County Skills
The competition gives
local high school students a
chance to compete in several
chosen areas. Competitions
will be in both vocational and
academic areas, from auto­
mechanics and welding to
mathematics and computer
skills, Al Pfahl, competition
organizer, said.
For the College, it is an
indirect way of familiarizing
future college students with
the campus.
“We don’t openly talk
about what the College has to
offer, but the idea is trans­
ported,” Pfahl said. “It can
be used as a recruiting tool
because it has been so suc­
Winners of any competi­
tion are given the opportunity
to apply for a one-term tuition
waiver for their first year at
the College, Pfahl said. Of last
year’s competitors, 22 of the
40 winners received waivers.
The idea behind the com­
petition is that it is a func­
tional part of the education
process. It gives a high school
student the chance to use the
skills he/she has learned and
apply it. “These students are
the top high school students in
the county. Each high school
is usually represented by at
least a couple of students,.”
Pfahl said. “We get calls from
some high schools out of
county, too. But they are not
eligible for. the county
In past years Pfahl, who
is employed by the Educa­
tional Service District (ESD),
has worked with the assistant
dean of instruction at the Col­
lege. Since the position is now
vacant, he is cooperating with
Jeff Buser, the metal fabrica­
tion department chairperson
at the College.
• Pfahl said that in past
years about 900 students have
participated in the skills com­
petition. This year, though, he
is expecting 700.
In addition to the tuition
waivers offered to the winners,
medals and certificates will be
mailed out to the schools’
team competitors.
Tax presentation cancelled
A sales tax presentation,
scheduled for Feb. 15 at 7
p.m. in the McLoughlin
theater, has been cancelled due
to the recent Supreme Court
ruling that removed the sales
tax from the March ballot, Ed
Mills, economics instructor
and presentation organizer,
Mills had announced
earlier last week that the
presentation would be held if
he was assured of certain con­
ditions concerning the special
session of the legislature.
Rep. Darlene Hooley and
Rep. Chuck Bennet were going
to present both sides of the
issue, and Richard Munn,
director of the Oregon State
Revenue Department, was
scheduled to give a historical
view of the sales tax.
