Larry Lambert, a programming and web instructor from Minuteman Career and Technical High School in Lexington, Mass., enjoyed a fantastic “mega prize” provided by Asurion. Lambert won the drawing at a reception for SkillsUSA’s 100-percent advisors and chapters of distinction during its June national conference in Louisville, Ky.
Joined by his wife, Joanne, Lambert attended a Sept. 8 reception with SkillsUSA staff and toured the national headquarters. Later that day, the couple went sight-seeing in Washington, D.C., with SkillsUSA executive director Tim Lawrence. The prize package also included tickets to a Washington Nationals game, which several SkillsUSA staffers also attended.
SkillsUSA offers a huge thank-you to its partner Asurion for sponsoring the prize package.
The one-year countdown to competition has begun as SkillsUSA initiates the process to field a team of talented young skilled trades experts to represent the United States at the 2024 WorldSkills Competition to be held Sept. 10-15 in Lyon, France.
SkillsUSA has once again teamed up with Tractor Supply Company (TSC), Tractor Supply Company Foundation and Carhartt for their annual “Support the Trades” campaign designed to raise awareness of the skilled trades while helping SkillsUSA close the skilled trades gap. Carhartt and TSC have an expanded this year’s “Support the Trades” line of shirts and hats from Carhartt to benefit SkillsUSA.
