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.
