North Tech Students Travel to SkillsUSA State Competitions

North Tech recently took 27 qualifying students to compete at the SkillsUSA State Competitions in Linn, Missouri. April 13th and 14th, State Technical College of Missouri hosted this year’s competitions during which students in career and technical (CTE) majors in both high school and post-secondary education came together to work, learn, and compete in a wide variety of skilled trade contests. North Tech’s students had excelled at the district competitions earlier this year and earned this opportunity to compete against top CTE students from across the state.

Governor Greitens addressed the competitors Friday morning, stating that what students are learning through CTE is essential to the state of Missouri’s prosperity. CTE allows students to develop work ethic, responsibility, and creative problem solving skills along with the variety of specialized skills related to their career focused course of study. “We have to have a trained, excited, and capable work force,” Greitens said, “and the work that you guys are doing at SkillsUSA represents the very work we need to be promoting throughout the state of Missouri.” Greitens also acknowledged the mentors and teachers in attendance for their important work.
