At the end of February, retired Adult Educator and CCAE member, Alice Yoshioka, emailed the following:
After retirement, I decided to work with HLPAE students in competing in SkillsUSA, which is a huge organization that works with students to develop skills and leadership qualities. There are several levels of competition when students compete with other students in their field of study throughout the State and even the Nation. They start with local competition and advance forward to Region, State and National depending on how they perform. All 12 of our students have advanced to the State level. At Region our students competed in 5 categories (we are in Region 3 LA and Ventura County), and we took 4 gold medals, 3 silver and 2 bronze. We are so proud of our students.
Alice emailed to let us know that HLPAE will be adding these students to their Platinum Institutional Membership. Congratulations and best wishes to these students and to their support team:
