11 CV-TEC Students Attend NYS SkillsUSA Leadership Conference

skillsusa_conference2017_ffSkillsUSA is a student leadership organization for students training in trade, industrial, and health occupations with over 300,000 members nationwide. Our CV-TEC SkillsUSA Officers participated in a leadership conference, which focused on learning skills that would help them become better leaders, not only in their SkillsUSA chapter, but in their local community.

Eleven CV-TEC students from both our Plattsburgh and Mineville Campuses attended the Annual NYS SkillsUSA Fall Leadership Conference held on November 5th-7th, 2017 in Albany, NY. Ten of our students and all four advisors were awarded their Statesmanship Pin. The Fall Leadership Conference was impressive, with ALL students participating in leadership activities and doing their very best. Students also toured the New York State Capitol Building. During this tour, they learned about the history of the construction of the building as well as were able to see where their elected officials meet and hold Legislative Sessions. We are so very proud of you!

We would like to thank the Board of Education and our administration for their continued support of SkillsUSA. Many thanks also goes to the SkillsUSA advisor team, which consisted of Brett Bernhard and Jaime Armstrong. Your dedication to our students and organization was very much appreciated and made the trip an outstanding success!
