Onslow County Schools recently issued the following announcement.
Last year, the devastation of Hurricane Florence affected many areas and lives in North Carolina. On Thursday, September 19, SkillsUSA North Carolina came to Onslow County to show their support for OCS students in the storm’s aftermath.
That day, they presented Richlands High School, Jacksonville High School and Swansboro High School SkillsUSA Chapters with checks of $500 each to support their local chapter’s needs. The majority of this support came from a financial contribution from Camden County Technical School SkillsUSA Chapter in Camden, New Jersey.
SkillsUSA said that this donation is an example of the spirit of the SkillsUSA Family, as members from another state organized and conducted a fundraiser to help support students they did not know.
Last fall the SkillsUSA North Carolina Board of Directors authorized the support of paying the membership dues for SkillsUSA members who had missed over 30 school days as a result of last fall’s hurricanes. As a result, SkillsUSA North Carolina supported and sponsored Richlands, Jacksonville and Swansboro High Schools SkillsUSA chapters’ 106 student and advisor members in the amount of $1592.
This most recent donation brings SkillsUSA’s financial support for Onslow County Schools SkillsUSA Chapters to $3092.
SkillsUSA is a partnership of students, teachers and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. They provide educational programs, events and competitions that support career and technical education (CTE) in the nation’s classrooms.
