Seven Liberty College and Career Academy students competed in the state competition of SkillsUSA on March 18 in Atlanta.

Two placed in events from among students from across state. K-Ci Jones placed second in culinary arts and Daniel King placed third in graphic arts.

SkillsUSA is a partnership of students, teachers and industry working to ensure America has a skilled workforce. It provides educational programs, events and competitions that support career and technical education.

“Associates from LCCA have been preparing for this competition throughout the school year,” Tom Alexander, LCCA CEO said. “I can say without hesitation that Liberty County Schools was represented by one of the brightest, most-mature and capable groups of students we’ve had at LCCA.”

In addition to Jones and King, other students competed in baking and pastry, silk screening, CPR/first aid, engineering math and extemporaneous speaking.
