     SkillsUSA is a national organization for students enrolled in vocational programs that prepare them for careers in trade, technical and skilled services. At the Connellsville Area Career & Technical Center, students involved in the SkillsUSA Club participated in the Western Region Leadership Conference held Nov. 5-7 at Seven Springs Mountain Resort. This trip was very costly to the club,, and partly thanks to Davies Ford and various other business sponsors, 22 students were able to attend the conference. Recently, Joyce Tremba, a Davies Ford sales representative, arrived at the center with a variety of brand new Ford vehicles for the “Drive One 4 Ur School” fundraiser. For every individual who completed the test drive and information sheet, Ford Motor Company donated $20 to the SkillsUSA organization. Thanks to Davies Ford of Connellsville, student volunteers and members of the community, the club was able to raise $3,600.
