Five Putnam County High School SkillsUSA members traveled to Southern Crescent Technical College February 1 to compete at the Region 5 SkillsUSA competition. PCHS competed in several different competitions that Region 5 had to offer, such as job demonstration, welding and job interview. After a long day of competing, five PCHS students won gold medals.
This is the second year that Destiny Kieu won first place in first aid/CPR category.
Also, four PCHS students, Micah Gage Snipes, Christopher Perrin, Jacob Knight and Bronson Sheriff, placed first in welding fabrication in an online test.
These five students will make their way to the SkillsUSA State Leadership and Skills Conference at the Georgia International Convention Center in Atlanta March 22-24.
