The Sewanhaka SkillsUSA Club competed in technical and leadership events at the SkillsUSA Area VI Long Island Regional Leadership Conference on March 26. Twenty-nine Sewanhaka CTE students participated, with 19 earning medals. One of the group’s members was also chosen to serve as an executive officer, the Area VI treasurer. We are extremely proud of our students’ commitment to the preparation required to achieve such lofty goals. The club members will next travel to the New York State SkillsUSA Spring Leadership Conference in Syracuse, in April. Congratulations to the following students:
