College and Career Academy Students Compete at Career and Technical Instruction/State Leadership Conference

Apr 14 2018

Five students from CCA competed in the recent Career and Technical Instruction/State Leadership Conference. All students placed in their respective categories. Madison Crawford won first place for Clinical Skills, Jason Konoval won first place for Graphic Design, Chelsie Turman finished second in Job Interview/Career Manual, Chris Bishop and Nick Harris earned third place in Team Career Skills.

The focus of CTI State Leadership Conference is to provide students with exceptionalities enrolled in Technical, Career or Agriculture classes the opportunity to participate in high quality interactive leadership activities. Students are provided the opportunity to compete statewide with other CTI students through Career/Technical projects, exhibits and skill demonstrations. The purpose of the conference is to reward students showing the greatest improvement in Technical/Career and work adjustment skills and to recognize the achievement through individualized awards. The conference also serves as an incentive for other students with exceptionalities to improve their skills, to provide an opportunity for cultural growth and personal development, to improve self-confidence and to build self-worth. This year, over 650 students from the state of Georgia attended. Thank you to CCA Instructors, Dave Green, Michelle Kelly and Chris Smith for your support and time helping each of these students achieve their best. CTI Coordinator for the College and Career Academy, South Campus, is Debra Powell.
