Oct. 3, 2023 -- Two students from College Station HS met with elected officials in Washington, D.C. Sept. 23 - 27 to talk about how SkillsUSA and their career and technical education (CTE) programs have prepared them to be college and career-ready. 

The four-day SkillsUSA Washington Leadership Training Institute conference provided students an opportunity to grow in their professionalism, communication and leadership skills, which they apply during their visits to Congress. Delegations talked to elected officials or their staff members about their education paths and CTE training programs, the value of career and technical education and the benefits of their SkillsUSA participation. They explained how today's workplace requires employees with career readiness skills, and that SkillsUSA develops these skills in students of all ages and backgrounds.

The conference focused on advanced communications skills including development of a SkillsUSA Framework story to share during their visits with elected officials. This year's conference included training for students and advisors on personal and workplace skills; a tour of Washington, D.C., monuments and museums; and a wreath laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at the 9/11 Pentagon Memorial.

Following is a list of those who attended in the delegation from Texas from College Station High School: Siri Paruchuri (CSHS Senior), State Officer, Shyanna Ringo (CSHS Junior), District 7 Officer for Texas & Kimberly Munoz, SkillsUSA Chapter Advisor
