Learning How to Lead
Wednesday, September 11, 2019
A group of six EHOVE students joined hundreds of other high school students and advisors from high schools throughout the state from July 15-19 at Ohio State University for the SkillsUSA Leadership Conference. They were joined by two EHOVE SkillsUSA Advisors - Medical Careers Instructor Fay Felske and Criminal Justice Instructor Tony Dauch.
Students received the necessary training to lead their local chapter of SkillsUSA with activities including a creed challenge, leadership sessions, team building, college readiness and competitions. Participating EHOVE students:
• Olivia Deemer – Medical Careers, Huron HS
• Cheyenne Null – Exercise Science & Rehab Therapy, St. Paul HS
• Carly Bly – Culinary Arts, Norwalk HS
• Allison Wells – Engineering Tech, Vermilion HS
• Demar Simmons – Criminal Justice, Edison HS

The students, as well as Felske and Dauch, earned a Statesman Award by participating in the leadership and competitive events at the conference.
SkillsUSA is a partnership of students, teachers and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. The Ohio chapter provides its 31,500+ career-technical education members, which includes many EHOVE students, the opportunity to participate in local, regional, state and national competitive events, and encourages students to give back to the community through various community service activities.
