Sandy Creek SkillsUSA is Big Winner at State Conference

The SkillsUSA Chapter at Sandy Creek High has set the stage for what could be one of its most successful years yet.

Fresh from the 2012 SkillsUSA Georgia Fall Leadership Conference held on St. Simon’s Island September 13-15, the chapter is celebrating two major state awards: Largest Membership in Georgia and Chapter Image, an award based on overall chapter spirit, professionalism, and conduct during the conference. Approximately 900 students statewide participated.

A total of 27 students made up Sandy Creek’s conference delegation. In addition to the chapter awards, the delegation also set itself above the competition by having five members win the Distinguished Statesman Award that tests students’ knowledge of the SkillsUSA organization and leadership. The winners are Xena Diaz, Saridh Galvan, Macie Giordano, Shelton Leonard, and Paula Uribe.  

The annual Georgia Fall Leadership Conference provides students an opportunity to learn leadership skills through training sessions, team building activities, motivational speaker presentations, and both individual and chapter competitions.

SkillsUSA is a national nonprofit organization of students, teachers, and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce.
