Students at Carbon Career and Technical Institute are often recognized for their competitive spirit, especially when it comes to competing in the SkillsUSA competition. One part of that competition is the American Spirit Competition. Three students are working hard to prepare for this competition, which consists of three separate categories: community service, patriotism and citizenship, and promotion of career and technical education.
Students Lucy Taylor, Karissa Nenscel and Destiny Green recently organized and presented a CCTI Career Academy SHINE Family Involvement Night. These students offered the students and their families a PowerPoint presentation promoting career and technical education, as well as an information brochure about CCTI.
Attendees then had the opportunity for questions and answers. This activity fulfills the promotion of career and technical education requirement for the American Spirit Competition.
The three students are organizing a “Jump-for-Vets” activity on Feb. 14 to fulfill the patriotism and citizenship requirement. All money raised in this event will be donated to the Valor Clinic in Jonas.
To meet the community service requirement, Taylor, Nenscel and Green will assist with the upcoming CCTI blood drive scheduled for March 20.
