Millionaires take on SkillsUsa

Sydney Crews, Writer

Williamsport Area High School has had a significant impact on student leaders within its community with the help of CTE(Career Technical Education). CTE has exemplified the hands-on learning education that students have partaken in over the past two decades. With 14 CTE Programs that cover many career fields, students have the opportunity to expand their knowledge and dive deep into their career interests. Not only has CTE opened students up to new interests, but it has allowed them to find their inner leader and share their knowledge of their respective CTEs with SkillsUSA.

SkillsUSA is a partnership of students, teachers, and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. SkillsUSA helps each student excel by providing educational programs, events, and competitions that support career and technical education in the nation’s classrooms.

The Millionaires successfully took the SkillsUSA Competition by storm with 29 students in attendance, and 21 earned top finishes. Twelve students earned first-place students, five earned second-place finishes, and four earned third place. Millionaire students Laila Robertson, Leo Miller, and Makalyah Johnson took first in the Health Knowledge Bowl and have the opportunity to travel to Hershey on April 12th-14th, alongside their peers, to compete at the highest level.
