CVCC’S SKILLSUSA ENTREPRENEURSHIP TEAM WINS GOLD

AT NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

Catawba Valley Community College’s (Hickory, N.C.) SkillsUSA team brought home gold from the National Championships in Kansas City, Mo.

SkillsUSA is an opportunity for high-performance students enrolled in career and technical programs to match skills against their peers in leadership, teamwork, citizenship and character development. It builds and reinforces self-confidence, work attitudes and communications skills. SkillsUSA also promotes understanding of the free-enterprise system and involvement in community service.

"SkillsUSA is the perfect match for our students because they get to display their talents in their area of study in a competitive environment,” said Gary Muller, CVCC’s Business Programs Department Head.

"But it’s about more than just the competition,” Muller explained. "Our students get to experience new things and see a world they might never have seen were it not for SkillsUSA. We are so proud to offer this opportunity to build self-confidence and genuine skills for the workplace,” added Muller.

The CVCC Entrepreneurship Team included Carolyn Elmore, John Lineberger, Michael Lewis and Sebrina Brooks. They submitted a business plan for "A Peaceful Passage Transportation Service.” The business picks up and transports decedents from hospitals, nursing homes, personal homes, and transports them to distant funeral homes or medical examiner’s offices. Elmore, Lineberger and Lewis are enrolled in the Funeral Service program. Brooks is a Business Administration major.
