Once again, students from Carvers Bay High School were named South Carolina State Champions at the SkillsUSA competition in Greenville.
On April 3, Building Construction teacher Terry Cox and Health Science teacher Ann Carter along with eight Carvers Bay High School students — Wallette Jeanerette, Nolan Langston, Madison Marsh, Demasio Timmons, Calvin Webster, Laja Wright, Jacob Yasika, and Dayton Young — traveled to Greenville to compete in the statewide SkillsUSA competition.
While there, the students competed in Plumbing, Carpentry, Brick Masonry, Medical Terminology, and Medical Math.
Senior Laja Wright placed first in Medical Math, and seniors Demasio Timmons and Wallette Jeanerette placed second and third, respectively, in that category. Junior Calvin Webster was awarded first place in Plumbing.
Freshman Jacob Yasika was elected State Secretary of the SC SkillsUSA Organization.
First place winners Laja Wright and Calvin Webster will represent South Carolina in the National SkillsUSA Competition in Kansas City, Mo. on June 23.
Building Construction teacher and SkillsUSA Advisor Terry Cox said, “I’m very proud of all of the students here at Carvers Bay High School, and I want to thank our principal Richard Neal for his ongoing support of all our CATE (Career and Technology Education) students.”
