A Clarkton Senior is among 100 students currently competing in a Facebook contest for a $15,000 scholarship to the Tulsa School of Welding. Will Jackson says he is no stranger to hard work and his dream is to be a certified pipe welder with a business of his own.  Jackson goes to school in Clarkton during the mornings, and in the afternoon, he attends Kennett Career and Technology Center as a second year student where he is learning welding.  Teachers are impressed with his talents and say he turns welding into an art form.  He has filled out the application, written the essay and produced the video, now he needs the votes.  To vote, go to Tulsa Welding School - Tulsa Campus Facebook page and search for Will Jackson.  You can vote once per day. The competition is being held with the help of former Dirty Jobs host, Mike Rowe.
