Our anchor, Dwinneylyne Butanas, was just named Valedictorian for the Shaw High School class of 2014! Congrats to our teammate!
You can congratulate her with a generous donation to SkillsUSA Nationals.
My name is Chandler Braski, I am a senior at Shaw High School. This year I competed in SkillsUSA in the cabinetry category. I participated in the regions competition in LaGrange and won second place. As a second place winner, I advanced to the state competition in Atlanta. At the state competition, I won first place and now have the opportunity to go to the national competition in Kansas City.
The purpose of the national competition is to help the contestants prepare for employment and to recognize outstanding students for excellence and professionalism in the field of cabinetmaking.
I have worked hard to make it to this level and would like to ask your support to help fund this trip. You may make a donation at gofundme.com. Any amount would be appreciated.
I am very excited to represent Shaw High School and the state of Georgia in Kansas City.
Thank you for your support.
My name is Dwinneylyne Butanas, and this is my senior year at Shaw High School. I maintain a 4.22 GPA and have a passion for mathematics. I am currently President of Mu Alpha Theta, Vice President of SkillsUSA, Historian of National Honor Society, and Public Relations for Senior Council. I have been competing for SkillsUSA in Broadcast News Production for the past three years. Every year I gain another incredible experience and new knowledge. Without SkillsUSA I would not be the confident, hard working young woman I am today. All of the time and energy put into preparing for competition has brought me new friendships, outstanding communication skills, leadership qualities, and memories I will always cherish. I truly cannot express how honored and grateful I am to represent the State of Georgia at the SkillsUSA National Competition in Kansas, Missouri.
My name is Darian Travon English, and I am a junior at Shaw High School. I am in the Sound Of Silver marching band, and I also am the SkillsUSA secretary at my school. This is my second year in SkillsUSA and last year I competed at the state level in Broadcast News Production. My team placed second in the state. Luckily we all came back this year and competed in the same competition and this year we won first place in the state! I've always worked extremely hard to get everything in life, and this time I need a little help from my community to help me achieve another goal. Ever since I joined SkillsUSA I have become extremely confident, and outgoing. This organization has become a huge part of my life and I take it very seriously. State competition has shown me how hard earning a position in the work force will be when I get out of school. I know that competing at the national level will be much more intense and competitive, but my team will work as hard as we can to represent Georgia and bring home more medals.
Hello, my name is Darcy Flowers Jr. I am a senior at Shaw High School and my team and I just placed first at the SkillsUSA State Competition. Even though this is such a blessing and huge opportunity, we do not have enough funds to go at this moment. Any donation that can help us reach our $3,000+ goal would be greatly appreciated. We are determined to go to Nationals since this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for us, and we are the only school in Columbus, Georgia chosen to represent the state.
My name is Jacobe Love and I am a senior attending Shaw High School. I am an aspiring actor, director, and Youth minister who plans to create or star in films that will inspire and motivate society for the better. Currently I reside in the great city of Columbus, Georgia in a single parent home with my loving mother, athletic brother, and intelligent sister. My father committed suicide when I was seven so growing up without a dad wasn't easy. It was a blessing in disguise for me, as it sparked a passion inside me to want to be a big brother and mentor to those without fathers, those who lacked academic motivation, and to those who just were not confident in their manhood so I launched a positive program for young males called "Man Up."
SkillsUSA is an organization that prepares students to enter, and be successful in the work force. SkillsUSA recently had a state competition in Atlanta, Georgia where my fellow SkillsUSA members and I won gold medals in Cabinet Making and Broadcast News Production. Winning first place means that we are eligible to advance to the national level. This is a great feat for our school and city because, Shaw High School is the only school out of Columbus, Georgia to win 1st place and be awarded the honor of competing at nationals. The problem we have is collecting enough money to pay our way to nationals. It's going to take around $3,000 to get there, and anything you decide to donate, no matter how small, will help.
