FETC students complete SkillsUSA competition

BUCKHANNON — Fred Eberle Technical Center (FETC) students from multiple counties competed in their prospective fields on Tuesday, February 8.

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

Rebecca Bowers-Call, Director at FETC, stated, “I am happy we were able to resume hands on competition this year and we are looking forward to state competition.”

“SkillsUSA is important and lets the students demonstrate their knowledge and passion in their chosen field,” said FETC Allied Health Instructor Amy Hawkins. “This is their time to shine.”

It is also noted that the individuals who judge competitions are often prospective employers. This can also help students line up work after they become certified in their field. Allied Health students Reese Hutson and Emily Fulton were seen taking blood pressures during competition day. Carpentry students were hard at work as well, along with students who were working in computer technology.
