The 2016 SkillsUSA Tennessee State Conference was held in Chattanooga, TN on April 18-20. We had over 1500 participants and 99 contests this year. The Opening Ceremony Monday night kicked off with the Parade of Champions. Thank you to all schools who participated. The night continued with encouraging words from the National SkillsUSA Board of Directors President Brent Kindred, and was highlighted by a fantastic speech from our keynote speaker, the CEO of Uprise Solutions and former SkillsUSA National Officer, Amelia Powers. Congratulations to Sandra Timberlake from TCAT Nashville for being awarded Outstanding Student of the Year and a brand new car!

Tuesday was filled with more competitions and community service. The evening concluded with a nice dinner at the Chattanooga Convention Center and all participants were able to have fun at the Tennessee Aquarium. The conference wrapped up Wednesday morning with the Awards and Closing Ceremony. Congratulations to all State Medalists!

The State Officer Team wanted to thank everyone for another excellent Tennessee Postsecondary event. They look forward to seeing you at the SkillsUSA National Conference in Louisville in June!
