COLUMBUS — Last fall, 21 students from the Buckeye Hills Career Center (BHCC) SkillsUSA Chapter joined other SkillsUSA students and advisors from the state at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus for the SkillsUSA Ohio State Fall Leadership Conference.
Representing more than 60 schools, these students received the necessary training to lead their local chapter of SkillsUSA for the year. In addition to an opening general session, students attended a series of breakouts including chapter leadership, resume presentation, interview presentation, delegate training and officer candidacy training.
SkillsUSA Ohio provides its 31,967 Career-Technical education members with the opportunity to participate in local, regional, state and national competitive events, run for elective offices, and participate in leadership training. It also encourages students to give back to the community through various community service activities.
