CTC Students Take Home Medals at State Competition

Congratulations to the Columbus Technical College chapter of SkillsUSA for bringing home 17 medals during the statewide competition last weekend in Augusta. The nine students who earned gold medals at the state level will go on to compete nationally in Kansas City, Missouri this June. CTC SkillsUSA Advisor John Lipham said he couldn’t be prouder of both the students who competed and the faculty advisors who helped them along the way.

“We know the advisors worked hard to prepare their students for this conference and played a big part in inspiring them. The students are to be congratulated on their success at the State SkillsUSA competition. They put in many extra hours preparing and we are so proud of all of them,” Lipham said.

Congratulations to all 27 students who competed at the state level and best wishes to our gold medal winners as they vie for national titles in Kansas City this June!
