Nash Community College President Bill Carver recently recognized the College’s SkillsUSA Chapter as the NCC Pride Award recipient. Each year, the award honors a full-time employee or group of employees who approach their role with pride.
The chapter was awarded for demonstrating a high level of service and commitment as a partnership of students, teachers, and industry working together to promote a skilled local workforce.
Nash Community College’s SkillsUSA chapter was chartered during the Spring 2017 Semester to help students excel by providing educational programs, leadership opportunities, events and competitions that support career and technical education.
Dr. Carver commended the group for their commitment to preparing students for lifelong success, seeing the value in preparing students at the highest level to become skilled graduates, while taking part in real-world learning experiences and connecting with employers.
SkillsUSA empowers its members to become world-class workers, leaders and responsible citizens. The organization helps to improve the quality of the future skilled workforce through the development of framework skills including personal, workplace and technical skills grounded in academics.
