New Officers on the Board of Directors and State Association Directors
Tony Glenn, Paul Williams and Glenn Barefoot are just leaving the SkillsUSA Board of Directors after serving their full terms. It’s been a time of important progress for SkillsUSA and they have been part of why that progress has happened. We’re excited to have two new members joining the Board. They are Holly Harriel, Career and Technical Education Specialist from Rhode Island and representing Region I and Marlys Bucher, Minnesota Department of Education and representing Region IV. Each brings considerable expertise to the work of SkillsUSA present and future. Finally, congratulations to new Board President Julie Yeater, Board Vice President Cameron Ferguson and to new Board Secretary Curtis Barnett on their elections.
The SkillsUSA state association directors held elections on Friday June 26 for the executive committee. Josh Klemp from Rhode Island and Steve Phillippi from Kentucky were re-elected to their positions representing Regions I and III respectively and Bruce McBurney from Washington high school division was elected Region V representative. Gail Silvey, Georgia high school division, was elected secretary, Kathie Collins-McKean, New York high school division was elected parliamentarian and Mike Cowles, Ohio, was elected president-elect.
