Skills USA

This is the group of Seward High School students that presented the program today at Kiwanis. They are members of the Skills USA organization. It is a national nonprofit organization serving teachers and students who are preparing for careers in trade, technical and skilled service occupations including health occupations. There are 50 students in Seward HS participating in this program. They were a very impressive group of young people and all have aspirations to go to college and have professional careers, but this is a way to learn some of the basics of their chosen profession. The young man at the podium is a sophomore, the young lady to the left of the picture is a senior, President of the Seward group and Secretary of the State organization, and the two to the right are Juniors. Their appearance, demeanor and presentation was most professional. It is very comforting to be with young people like this as we contemplate the future; much more so than reading the newspaper or seeing the evening news.
