The results are in and Team LCCTC has won three Gold medals, four Silver medals, and one Bronze medal at the National SkillsUSA Conference in Louisville, KY, last week. The SkillsUSA national competitions challenge state champions to demonstrate their expertise and skills in diverse technical fields including Firefighting, Dental Assisting, Nurse Assisting, Architectural Drafting, and many others.
According to our own review of the National SkillsUSA Conference website, no other team from an individual technical institution in Pennsylvania won as many medals as Team LCCTC did. Furthermore, no other team from an individual institution in Pennsylvania won as many Gold medals as did Team LCCTC. We are checking with SkillsUSA of Pennsylvania and National SkillsUSA to confirm our review.
SkillsUSA Team Advisor and LCCTC Instructor in Architectural CAD/Design, David Ecenrode said that he could not recall any previous SkillsUSA competition where we returned with as many medals. “And I don’t remember ever bringing home THREE Gold medals,” he exclaimed.
Depending on the competition field, national competition contestants are tested at workstations including hands-on, simulations, bench and component testing, and a written test. More than 6,000 students participated last year in the National SkillsUSA Championships. Students from every state competed in over 100 skilled, technical, service, and health occupation competitions.
Congratulations to the LCCTC National SkillsUSA Team for their sterling performance!
