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.
