Ohio Hi-Point’s Helman and Parker Earn Top Honors at Ohio Skills USA


Two Ohio Hi-Point students, Weston Helman, a Graphic and Media Arts junior from Graham High School, and Caleb Parker, a Criminal Justice junior from Indian Lake High School, recently attended the SkillsUSA Regional Officer Training Institute at Deer Creek Lodge on January 17-18.

As newly elected SkillsUSA Southwest Regional Officers, they joined other regional officers from around the state to work on team building, and leadership skills, as well as presentations and competitions at the training.

During the event, the SkillsUSA Southwest Regional team secured a gold medal in legislation advocacy, a silver in opening and closing ceremonies, and a bronze in the Goodwill visit. Helman and Parker also earned their “Statesman Award,” which is the highest award you can earn at the regional officer training.

The training institute provided an opportunity for skill development, competition, and camaraderie among all regional officers.

“We’re extremely proud of Wes and Caleb and how they represented Ohio Hi-Point, SkillsUSA, and themselves,” said Brad Richardson, Assistant Superintendent at Ohio Hi-Point. “This was a great opportunity for them to showcase their leadership skills and get to know other students from around the state.”
