SHHS Knights Plan for National SkillsUSA Week

There is an exciting component of Shadow Hills High School College & Career/Career Technical Education or CTE that many may not know about.

SkillsUSA is a partnership of students, teachers and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. A nonprofit national education association, SkillsUSA serves middle-school, high-school and college/postsecondary students preparing for careers in trade, technical and skilled service (including health) occupations.

SHHS Knights will be participating in the upcoming National SkillsUSA week the second week of February. Each day of the week has a theme which CTE students will participate in that is meaningful to the program. On Recognition Day, students will wear attire that “celebrate and honor members, advisors, administrators, business partners, community leaders and supporters who make an impact on CTE programs and SkillsUSA chapter". Students will showcase charitable projects and activities in which they have participated on Give Back Day. During Partner day, CTE students and teachers invite their industry partners to speak at school during class.

SkillsUSA empowers its members to become world-class workers, leaders and responsible American citizens. SkillsUSA has a vision to produce the most highly skilled workforce in the world, providing every member the opportunity for career success.
