It is almost time for school to begin and I am so excited. I have spent most of the summer working on new and innovative ways to improve our program and build partnership with business and industry. Our SkillsUSA Chapter is going to do big things this year but I cannot do it alone. I am going to need a strong group of students to run for Chapter Officer so that we can get these things done. I am especially going to need our own State Officers, President Brooklyn Whitten and District Officer Dillon Griffin to recruit new Chapter Officers to help get the ball rolling.
