Spencer Wolf, a 2013 graduate of Kettering Fairmont High School’s career-tech digital design program, represented the United States in this summer’s WorldSkills competition in Sao Paulo, Brazil. He was one of 19 U.S. qualifiers in the 43rd international test in 45 categories that included automotive technology, bricklaying, manufacturing, restaurant services and graphic design.
While not a medal winner, Wolf labeled the experience of both preparing and competing in the August 11-16 graphic design event as “life changing.”
Wolf works with clients at his own design firm, Wolf Graphic Design, while enrolled at Sinclair Community College. He qualified for the WorldSkills events based on his demonstrated knowledge and skills in a seven-hour design test offered to top SkillsUSA competitors. WorldSkills draws competitors from 72 countries within five continents.
USA team members who attained medals and medallions were from Missouri (Refrigeration and Air Conditioning), Massachusetts (Welding) and Michigan (Hairdressing).
