Several students from Blue Hills Regional Technical School in Canton earned numerous medals at the recent SkillsUSA District Leadership and Skills Conference held on March 9, 2018 at Greater New Bedford Regional Vocational Technical High School.

SkillsUSA is a worldwide organization for vocational students that encourages the development of valuable attributes such as professionalism, good citizenship, teamwork and other abilities that are useful in the workplace and in college.

"I'm so proud of our CTE students for demonstrating their in-depth knowledge, technical skills, workplace skills and leadership skills they have acquired at Blue Hills and shown off at the SkillsUSA competitions," noted Blue Hills Principal Jill Rossetti. "Now, the best of the best will advance to the state competition at the end of the month. I wish them all the best and can't wait to see the results."

The Blue Hills Regional SkillsUSA chapter advisor is Mr. Robert Foley. He said, “It is amazing what career and technical education does for all of our students at Blue Hills Regional Technical School. These students are a few examples of the many accomplishments our programs provide [opportunities for] to their students.  It is an honor to be part of the SkillsUSA program.”
