Recently, several West Branch’s CCCTC students competed in the Skills USA competition for trade schools and won awards in their fields. The skills competition is where several schools, like the CCCTC, have students compete in the fields they have chosen at the school. The skills competition provides students with personal skills, technical skills, workplace skills, and this competition introduces students to others with the same common interests.
