SKILLSUSA CHAPTER EXCELLENCE PROGRAM:
The national SkillsUSA organization has developed an amazing program to recognize SkillsUSA chapters that are providing excellent skill training, personal development, professional development, service activities and fun social activities for students. Additional information and applications for the CEP can be accessed at the following link on the National Website: http://www.skillsusa.org/programs/chapter-excellence-program/
Participation in the Chapter Excellence Program at any level is purely voluntary, but we encourage all Utah chapters to consider working towards the “Quality Chapter” Level 1 recognition. The application and documentation must be delivered to the state director no later than March 1, 2017.
Richard Wittwer has been teaching as an Automotive Technology instructor for 38 years, has been a SkillsUSA Utah Advisor for 33 years, and the State Director for 5 years.
