On the first day of school, Mike Veeder (right) was told by his father, “I hope you learn so much that at the end of the year, you’ll know more than your teacher!” What he didn’t know was that his dad, who owns a heating and air conditioning company, had been asked to take over the class. The instructor, also named Mike, took this photo at Questar III Columbia-Greene Educational Center in Hudson, N.Y. Also shown is Jon Morrissy.

The world has waited for your arrival. I believe that.

—Troy Justesen, U.S. Office of Vocational and Adult Education, to students at the SkillsUSA Washington Leadership Training Institute

Being a member of SkillsUSA, I learned invaluable skills like communication, professionalism, time management, event management and public relations, all of which have led to my success.

— Lowe's store manager Grayson DeGraff of Woodbridge, Va., former SkillsUSA college/postsecondary president
