The WHSAD SkillsUSA chapter has done it again!
Our chapter recently competed in four different competitions in the annual NYC SkillsUSA Leadership Conference. We are ecstatic to announce that students brought home medals from all four competitions.
Job Skills Demonstration
1st Place-Kenneth Nelson
(Demo on LED Light strip installation)
Action Skills/Job Demo
Opening and Closing Ceremonies Team (a competition based on Teamwork and Cohesiveness)
1st place-Guadalupe Hernandez, Trevon West, Adrian Sterling, Kaniyah Parris, Stephanie Ayala, Premnauth Ramchan, Jonathan Walker.
3rd Place-Jonah Vazquez
Despite losing his entire drawing right before he was ready to print, Jonah Vazquez pulled himself together and managed to finish in half the time and still managed to place 3rd in the Architectural Drafting category.
“My confidence in my speed added to my downfall as I didn’t feel the need to save just yet. This was the worst possible mistake I could’ve made.” When Jonah believed that there was nothing to be done, and was ready to give up, our WHSAD SkillsUSA Family came to the rescue!!!
“Before getting back to work, I heard nothing but the supporting words of the members of our chapter, and this is what drove me to continue. With their support, I was able to place third.”
