Greene County Career and Technology Center students Alyssa Thomas and Zachary Royer won first place in the statewide SkillsUSA competition held last month in Hershey. As first-place winners, both received tool sets and scholarships and will compete in their competitions against winners from each state in Louisville, Ky., in June. Skills USA is a national student organization that develops employability, participatory and leadership skills to complement the occupational skills developed by students in technical education classrooms or work-based learning sites. SkillsUSA is an integral part of approved technical education occupation programs. Thomas, a student at West Greene High School, and Royer, a student at Jefferson-Morgan High School, along with eight other students from Greene County, went to Hershey to compete after winning at the District 9 competitions in December, held in Greene County. Their trip to Hershey was sponsored by Chevron and EQT.
