LITTLE ROCK – ASU Three Rivers Career Center, with campuses in Malvern and Saline County, produced five officers this year for Arkansas SkillsUSA, a student organization focusing on career and technical knowledge, skills, and abilities. In addition to leadership opportunities, the organization appoints nine officers to serve the state chapters each school year. Applications are accepted and appointments are made in October. The criteria considered in making the appointments are aligned with a rubric containing the following: GPA, previous leadership involvement, an essay, and general effect of the application itself.
These officers attend events around the state representing the student organization and its interests, receive national leadership training and scholarship opportunities from various post-secondary institutions, and qualify to serve as a national SkillsUSA officer.
The following students were selected for the appointments: Kayleigh Chaney (Glen Rose HS/CNA), Secretary; Jac Campos (Malvern HS/Criminal Justice), Reporter; Dominique Harper (Malvern HS/Criminal Justice), Parliamentarian; Joseph Jester (Arkadelphia HS/Welding), Alternate; Zane Austin (Poyen HS/Criminal Justice),
The instructors who assisted these students in preparing and submitting their applications were Derrell Campbell (Welding), Toni Dyer (CNA), and Bobby Shell (Criminal Justice).
