EPCOT’s team

EPCOT’s team earned silver in the Opening and Closing Ceremonies category at the State SkillsUSA Conference.  Team members are Karly Lundy, David Gray, Tianna Kay, Madelyn Griffith, and Kindall Bell from Pisgah High School, and Carlee Collins and Cooper Jones from Skyline High School.

Jackson County was well represented by the EPCOT (Earnest Pruett Center of Technology) students who competed at the Annual SkillsUSA State Conference. EPCOT students won 10 gold medals, eight silver medals, and six bronze medals and two were elected state officers.  EPCOT was recognized as the school with the highest conference registration.

  Students competing at the state level had already competed in district and local event to be selected to attend the state conference.  Each state competition gold medalist will advance to the SkillsUSA National Conference in Atlanta this summer.

  “The programs and competitions our students participate in are innovative, relevant, and rigorous,” stated Drew McNutt, career tech director at EPCOT.  “Many of these students are academically ranked top in their class.  Most have earned industry credentials and are taking dual enrollments courses in CTE and academics.  The accomplishments of these students are definitely resume builders that any college, industry, or employee will recognize as an advantage.  Their future is bright because they demonstrate what industry expects from educational workforce development.”

  Chris Campbell of North Sand Mountain High School and Bodie Wells of Woodville High School were elected as state officers.  They were elected by their peers at the conference which is attended by SkillsUSA members from across the state.
