SkillsUSA Throwback Thursday
Several of our drafting students participate in SkillsUSA, which is an organization for students in technical programs. SkillsUSA began as VICA (Vocational Industrial Clubs of America).
HutchCC first got involved with SkillsUSA/VICA back in 1998. Tracy Chadwick was the first student president. Tracy won first place in the Kansas state SkillsUSA Technical Drafting contest, and went on to win a Bronze medal at the national contest.
This was just the beginning of a winning tradition. Our students regularly finish first at state and go on to represent HutchCC at the national contest.
After completing a bachelor degree at Kansas State University, Tracy joined the faculty of Hutchcc, and has been the coordinator and lead instructor of the Computer Drafting Technology program since 2010.
