The West Virginia SkillsUSA State Conference was held at Fairmont State University March 25 -27, 2022. Twenty six JRTI students competed in various contests related to their technical programs and leadership. Twenty of those students won either bronze, silver, or gold medals. Unfortunately, they had to miss the awards ceremony because of bad weather along I-68. We will recognize their successes during an assembly at school. We’re proud of all of our competitors for working hard and giving it their all!

Gold medal winners will be representing West Virginia at the National Leadership and Skills Conference in Atlanta, GA this June. It is expensive to send students and advisors to the national conference. If you’re able to make a donation toward this, it will be a huge help. Thank you!

Congratulations to all of our medalists!
