Paving the Way for SkillsUSA

We have 10 students and 6 advisors/coaches that have qualified to compete in the National SkillsUSA Competition that takes place during the week of June 23-27 in Kansas City, MO. This competition is the culmination of months of industry-related work and is the pinnacle of our students' learning experience.

Qualifying for Nationals is no small feat and students should be commended for their dedication and practice. While placing on the state-level is in itself a huge accomplishment, our biggest endeavor is now ahead of us. Between now and June, we are faced with raising $25,000 in order to send our students and their coaches to Kansas City for their National Competition. Funding will be used for competition registration fees, travel expenses, shipping expenses, as well as food and lodging for the week-long event.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for our students, one that they are certain to remember forever. Please donate to help our cause, every donation gets us closer to our goal!
