Congratulations to our 11 SkillsUSA members who recently competed in nationals in Atlanta, Georgia!
Six A.W. Beattie students, which combined to make up two teams, medaled in their events!
“We're floored with how well all of our students did during their competitions and presentations,” Mrs. Heather Brown, Advertising Design instructor and SkillsUSA advisor, said. “As an organization, only roughly 1 percent of all SkillsUSA students get a chance to even make it to nationals. To have 11 amazing competitors from Beattie make it that far is just incredible. Regardless of what place anyone came in, just being there is truly a testament to how hard all of our students have worked on their career and professionalism skills.”
A.W. Beattie’s Chapter Display team - North Hills graduate Marisa White, North Allegheny graduate Sarah Woods and Pine-Richland junior Alijah Christner - earned second place in nationals and silver medals.
The Career Center’s Career Pathways Showcase: Arts and Communication team – North Allegheny graduate McKenzie Harrison, North Allegheny graduate Noel Malis and Shaler Area graduate Callum Montgomery – earned third place in nationals and bronze medals.
The Career Pathways Showcase: Health Services team – Northgate graduate Sarah Kabanda and Avonworth seniors Kayla Turcsanyi and Warren Lillie III – competed at nationals.
