State Directors Message for August 22, 2017
(Please forward/share this message with your CTE colleagues throughout your school/district.)
Welcome to another great year of Career and Technical Education Training with Skilled and Technical Science programs supported by SkillsUSA activities and events. We look forward to working with our amazing students, advisors, administrators and industry representatives.
As we start a new year with current and new participants, I hope that all of our student and professional members recognize the value of full participation in SkillsUSA. There is tremendous potential for professional development, leadership development, social activities, service activities and many opportunities for students to kick-start their career preparation efforts. Next spring we will add the “icing on the cake” that comes from local, regional, state and national competitions, where our students prove that they are the very best young career professionals that our country has to offer.
Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have questions, concerns or feedback. I wish you all the very best for a wonderful year.
