Today, around 600 students are heading out into the greater Kansas City area to perform community service. It’s been a long week and Friday is their only day to rest. But instead of hanging around the pool or sleeping in, this group of SkillsUSA Champions are giving back to the community. That’s the kind of young people we have in SkillsUSA. We are grateful to Timberland PRO for leading these service projects.
SkillsUSA University will be wrapping up today and the delegates will have their last meetings and cast their final ballots for the students who will represent them on the national level in the coming year.
Tonight, it’s back to Kemper arena for the Awards Ceremony, sponsored by Milwaukee Electric Tool Corp. We will be honored to hear from Joseph Galli, Jr., the chief executive officer for TTI. The winner of the Harley Raffle will be announced and the new national officers will be sworn in. And the National SkillsUSA Champions will receive their gold, silver and bronze medals.
Awards Ceremony tickets are available at the booth outside of 2103A in Bartle Hall and cost $10. They will also be available for purchase at Kemper Arena.
