Students at UniTec Career Center in Bonne Terre, Mo., didn’t just take part in an annual SkillsUSA canned food drive; they set a record for the most cans ever collected at the event. The drive is set up as a friendly competition between different programs within the career center, designed to help students practice teamwork while learning to serve their community. Students used their personal skills to spread the word about the fundraiser, and UniTec decided to continue the drive in the future while creating new community service initiatives for years to come.
