Through the MCC Foundation, the annual event supports opportunities for students who are planning to enter trades careers and participate in the MCC chapter of SkillsUSA, including 20 MCC students who qualified to compete in the SkillsUSA Championships in Atlanta June 23-24 by finishing in first or second place at the state championships in Grand Island last week. They have the opportunity to represent MCC at the national event that will feature more than 6,500 of the top career and technical trade students in the nation, who will be competing in timed and judged competitions that include audio/radio production, automotive service and refinishing technology, collision damage appraisal and repair technology, electrical construction wiring, digital cinema production, fire fighting, photography, TV/video production and welding fabrication.
“The MCC Golf Outing supports our students by providing them with a unique, memorable and engaging learning experience on their journey to a career in the trades, and provides valuable connection with industry experts and potential employers through SkillsUSA events,” said Rick Sandvig, development manager with the MCC Foundation. “This event is a great opportunity for the entire MCC community and industry partners to come together for an afternoon of fun while supporting a great cause.”
