Congratulations to Our New SkillsUSA Officers

SkillsUSA officers were recently sworn-in at each of our three Career & Technical schools and conducted their first official acts as officers. Looking on throughout the tradition-rich ceremonies were parents, friends, classmates, teachers and administrators.

SkillsUSA is a national organization for career and technical education students that promotes personal and professional growth in such skills as communications, interpersonal abilities, time management and teamwork, and offers them the opportunity to showcase their knowledge and strengths through competitions at the local, regional, state and national levels.

Congratulations and thanks to each of you for taking on these leadership roles!
