Sixteen students from Mansfield Senior High School’s Career Tech Education program participated in the Nov. 8-9 Ohio SkillsUSA Leadership Fall Conference in Columbus.

They were joined by Scott Musser, CTE director, and Dirk Eachus, Senior High’s Skills USA chapter advisor. “Our students are excited and empowered after the two-day event. I have several students who want to run for state and regional offices next year,” Musser said.

SkillsUSA’s mission statement says that the organization “empowers its members to become world-class workers, leaders and responsible American citizens. SkillsUSA improves the quality of our nation’s future skilled workforce through the development of framework skills that include personal, workplace and technical skills ground in academics.”

Nationally, SkillsUSA serves more than 335,000 students and instructors.
