2013 Skills USA National Competition

Help the NSO congratulate some of our members and their accomplishments at the Skills USA National Competition!

Member En Chieh Liu, also know as Jay, won Gold Medal in Culinary Arts at this years competition in Kansas City.  Jay is also a member of the ACF Student Team who will compete in Las Vegas late in the summer.  Last year, Jay won State Skills USA Competition, but passed the opportunity to the 2nd place winner because of the birth of his daughter Abagaile soon after.  To come back and win gold as a graduating senior is an amazing accomplishment!

Also representing Johnson and Wales at Skills was:

Clarissa Robinson in commercial Baking coming in 5 th in the Nation.

Elena Melekos in Extemporaneous Speaking coming in 7 th in the Nation. Elena has represented RI as a state officer.

Frank Marzano in Computer maintenance Technology coming in 13 rd in the Nation.

They all did a fantastic job!  Congratulations to all of our competing members!  

Congratulations to the winners of the PBL 2013 National Leadership Conference!
