On March 31st, 57 Coffee County SkillsUSA members attended the State Leadership and Skills Conference in Chattanooga for four days. The convention was home to over 2,300 students who competed in over one-hundred ten different competitions in all the career fields. Just a few examples of what was offered were Welding, Criminal Justice, A/V Production, MLR, Cosmetology, Engineering Design, and Machining. Competition was fierce at the conference as all were going for the Gold, as well as prizes and job opportunities.

The following members placed, followed by their medal and contest:

Kase Leatherwood and Tanner Brisbane with a Bronze in Audio and Visual Production

Matthew Hale, Jasiyah Knox, Josh Roberson, Emma Singleton, and Ashley Meadows  with a Silver in Quiz Bowl

Melanie McKelvey and Yanely Luna with a Silver in Television Production

Dalton McGinnis, Allison Vaughn and Bailey Roye with a Silver in Promotional Bulletin Board

The chapter also sent two state officer candidates, who were both elected. These two will join a team of six high schoolers who will oversee the operations of the entire state’s SkillsUSA organization, advocate for CTE, and also conduct workshop trainings for members to become better leaders.

Junior Jalen Morris was elected Vice President of the State.

Freshman Brayden Gray was elected Secretary of the State.

CTE Director of Coffee County High school, Richard Skipper, also received the 2018-2019 Administrator of the Year award and was recognized at the closing ceremony. His outstanding efforts for bettering the school’s CTE program made this award much deserved.
