Technology student Noah Russell was recently honored for winning a bronze medal
in Technical Drafting at SkillsUSA last summer. Russell was presented with an
award Monday, Nov. 21, at the Commissioner’s Recognition for Student Excellence
in Career & Technical Education at the state capitol in Lincoln.
“Getting honored felt really
good and special that I was recognized for getting third at Nationals for
SkillsUSA,” he said. “After SCC I am most likely going to go into industry as a
process engineer or go into setting up automation in plants.”
Last June, Russell won the
bronze medal in the Technical Drafting category at the National Leadership
& Skills Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. He qualified for it by placing
first in the same category at the Nebraska SkillsUSA conference last April in
Grand Island. The Nebraska City native is a second-year student and will
graduate next spring from SCC.
The ceremony recognized
outstanding Nebraska students in the following organizations; DECA, Educators
Rising, FBLA, FCCLA, FFA, HOSA and SkillsUSA.
