The purpose of SkillsUSA is to prepare “high performance” workers and it does so by providing quality educational experiences for students in leadership, teamwork, citizenship and character development.

Every student who participates in SkillsUSA is sponsored and advised by a dedicated Career and Technical Education instructor. These teachers and students spend many hours outside of the school day preparing for and participating in these industry level competitions.

This year Utica Community Schools had several students that were highly successful, earning many medals at regional events. Below is a list of UCS students honored
at the state conference last April in Grand Rapids.
