SkillsUSA Week is Feb. 7-13

SkillsUSA members at the Ohio Valley Career and Technical Center are celebrating SkillsUSA Week from Feb. 7-13, 2016 in conjunction with National Career and Technical Education Month.

The Officers plan the SkillsUSA Week activities at the Ohio Valley Career and Technical Center where students are active in SkillsUSA. The social activities students have planned different “dress days” for the week and the fund raising committee have planned a fund raiser to coincide with Valentine’s Day and SkillsUSA Week. These groups are lead by Mitzi Rowland and Sherry Davis.

SkillsUSA is a national organization serving high school and college students and professional members enrolled in training programs in technical, skilled, and service occupations, including health occupations in high schools and college/technical schools.

SkillsUSA has more than 305,000 members annually, organized into 13,000 chapters and 54 state and territorial associations (including the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam and the Virgin Islands).

SkillsUSA prepares America’s high performance workers. It provides quality education experiences for students in leadership, teamwork, citizenship and character development. It builds and reinforces self-confidence, work attitudes and communications skills.

It emphasizes total quality at work, high ethical standards, superior work skills, life-long education and pride in the dignity of work. SkillsUSA also promotes understanding of the free enterprise system and involvement in community service activities. For more information: www.skillsusa.org.

In honor of SkillsUSA Week, the Adams County Commissioners along with several CTC students proclaimed Feb. 7-13 as Adams County Skills Week.
