JUNE 19th-26th: National SkillsUSA Leadership Conference


I had an amazing time at SkillsUSA Nationals in Louisville, Kentucky. There were a lot of airport shenanigans as well as hotel fun.


Lots of cute snaps on the airplane and at the airport.

We had lots of fun meeting new people and spent so much time together that we ended up getting on each others nerves. In the end, I was pretty happy with how our project turned out. However, we were pretty exhausted by the end of the week.

Thankfully, we had the best Krispy Kreme donuts to save the day!




Models of Excellence Dinner

We had a lot of good food at the Models of Excellence Dinner at the Kentucky Derby. It was one of the main highlights of my trip!


I also had a lot of fun hanging out with the Texas delegation and voting with them on the last day of NSLC. Even though I was coerced into waking up early to help be a replacement for a delegate.


This was the Texas Delegation marching around before the Awards Ceremony. Also, we got to rep our state with stereotypical Texas cowboy hats.



So incredibly proud of our chapter for winning the Models of Excellence Award which is one of the highest honors that SkillsUSA chapter can receive.  There was a lot of hard work involved to achieve this award. 13502984_10157025826940591_2337684219526336238_o

We ended with a silver win, which we were slightly disappointed about but cheered nonetheless.

Our trip home was bittersweet. I had a blast at my last NLSC and I have to say that I owe a lot to SkillsUSA. Nevertheless, I was glad to be home.
