SkillsUSA hosts first ever banquet

From Eddy Parker

Comanche High School and HR Jefferies Junior High students attended their first SkillsUSA Banquet on Friday night in the CHS Commons. Students showcased their accomplishments and spoke to those in attendance about their experiences this school year. Students competed in Skills and Leadership competitions at the district and state level. This year the students earned 23 gold, 5 silver and 1 bronze medal for their efforts. Three students Esme Guerrero, Landon Deters and Dalton Salinas won a position on the SkillsUSA District 10 officer team and Brielle Kellems will serve her first term as SkillsUSA Texas State Officer. All four students will have a busy June by attending Summer Leadership for 5 days and some will travel to Atlanta, Georgia for additional training later in the month. We are so proud of all they have accomplished and they look forward to the summer training and getting back to school next year to put what they learn to use.

The three components of the SkillsUSA Framework are: personal skills, workplace skills and technical skills grounded in academics. Personal skills include values, personality traits and personal characteristics for success in life. Workplace skills are attitudes and abilities for success in the workplace.
