Madison Gregory Attends Skills USA National Leadership Conference

Recently, Madison Gregory attended the Skills USA National Leadership Conference
in Louisville, Kentucky held June 19 th -23, 2017. It was there that she represented
Fairbury High School competing against many other students from all over the
United States. To get to the National Conference and compete, one must first win at
the state level. Madison did just that back in April placing 1 st in the state of Nebraska
in Cosmetology.
Skills USA is a national organization with chapters in all 50 states. SkillsUSA is a
partnership of students, teachers and industry working together to ensure America has a
skilled workforce. SkillsUSA helps each student excel. They provide educational
programs, events and competitions that support career and technical education (CTE) in
the nation’s classrooms.
Students at both the high school and post secondary levels are on hand to show off
their skills and compete in areas they are interested in. It’s a growing organization
and Nebraska alone has seen significant increases in their numbers.
Pictured here are Madison and her mother Jackie taken during the week of the
contest. There were around 40 students competing at the high school level and
many more at the secondary level. This was her first time at Nationals! I want to
congratulate her on representing Nebraska at the conference and on a job well done.
