SkillsUSA Pancake Breakfast
On Sunday, March 12, the Indian Valley Vocational Center (IVVC) SkillsUSA members will host a pancake breakfast at the Sandwich Fire Department at 310 E Railroad Street, Sandwich, from 8:00 to noon. All proceeds will go towards funding the SkillsUSA state trip to Springfield. Tickets will be $6 at the door or will be sold for $5 in advance. There will be home-cooked pancakes, eggs, sausage, and beverages, as well as a ‘split the pot’ raffle!
Over the course of the year, IVVC students have been working in preparation for a leadership competition. This competition is part of the SkillsUSA club, led by Project Lead the Way (PLTW) instructor David Hoskins and EMT-Basic instructor Sarah Speerly.
SkillsUSA is a leadership club that high school and college students participate in to gain leadership skills as well as practice skills related to their vocational class. At the end of April, those who qualify will have the opportunity to go practice their skills down in Springfield, Illinois in the state competition.
Earlier this year some of the SkillsUSA student leaders traveled to the Technology Center of DuPage where they had the opportunity to gain knowledge of the competitions. With the success of these students there were two 1st place awards, one 2nd place award, and one 3rd place award. The competing students returned to share what they learned with the other SkillsUSA members.
For advance tickets to the pancake breakfast, please see any SkillsUSA member or purchase them at the IVVC office, 600 Lions Road, Sandwich, 7:30-3:00 weekdays. Hope to see you there!
