In April, 48 students from Saint Paul College participated in the 51st Annual Minnesota SkillsUSA Conference Championships in numerous categories, accompanied by faculty and our SkillsUSA club advisors.
Students displayed their mastery and skills in the subject matter of each competition, as well as being articulate and well prepared. Students belonging to the SkillsUSA organization are considered to be highly skilled leaders, possessing outstanding technical, academic and employability skills.
SkillsUSA is a partnership of students, teachers, and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. This national nonprofit organization serves students who are preparing for careers in trade, technical, and skilled service occupations, including health occupations. State winners go on to the national SkillsUSA Championships in Louisville, Ky.
Good luck to our students as they compete at the national SkillsUSA competition.
