SkillsUSA went to Reno the week before Spring Break for the Skills USA competition and junior Kaylee Gomez won the Bronze Medal for the SkillsUSA Early Childhood Education.

Each person had their own competition. The exam, presentation and lesson planning was for Gomez’s competition, for other people it was different, for forensic science they had to do a mock crime science investigation, and web design had to design a website for a wedding.

“I was really surprised, and I had to re-read my name on the screen again and again to really believe it,” Gomez said. “I was overwhelmed with pride. It was the best feeling in the world.”

This competition involved three parts; an exam, the presentation and lesson planning.

“The competition was to take challenge and how to prepare yourself for the world of work and to step out of your comfort zone,” said Vice president Karenn Robles-Quintana.

The students prepared for the trip by studying  for their own competition and would meet up every week if they were in a group or if they were doing it alone, would study on their own time.

“We had fun and one of the girls won a medal,” said junior Kirsten Gonzalez. The group stayed at the Circus Circus in Reno.

In the end, SkillsUSA had fun and Sunrise Mountain High School is proud of these students.
