Champions at Work 36th Ann Annual all Region 1 SkillsUSA Competition AWC’s 26th Anniversary as host March 4th, 2011

Welcome from Arizona Western College Dr. Glenn E. Mayle President, Arizona Western College (928) 344-7500

Arizona Western College is pleased to host the Region I SkillsUSA Leadership and Skills Competition. On behalf of the College, I want to welcome all competitors, advisors, representatives of business and industry, and community volunteers. At a time when all of us are working to rebuild our nation’s economy, it is essential that we underscore the technical and leadership skills needed to insure and sustain a prosperous economic recovery. The SkillsUSA competition places emphasis on those skills while allowing participants to observe and learn from one another as well as from experienced professionals. It is my hope that business and industrial representatives in attendance will actively support and encourage participants both in their competitions and in the pursuit of their educational goals. Sincere thanks to all who have worked so hard to make this event possible, and to our student participants, the very best of luck to you in the competitions.

Tech Prep is a national initiative linking career and technical education programs offered at the high school level to degree and certificate programs at the post-secondary level. In the Tech Prep Education Act of 1990, this initiative was implemented to strengthen education programs for youth who might not earn a four-year post-secondary degree. At the national level, the goals of Tech Prep legislation were to (1) prepare students for promising careers (2) to improve the quality of both academic and career and technical education and enhance effectiveness of preparing students for careers by more closely integrating them, and (3) to improve education for the “neglected majority,” those students in the middle quartiles who would most likely finish high school but were unlikely to complete a four-year post-secondary education program. In Arizona, Tech Prep takes a local approach to addressing these issues. Eleven local Tech Prep Directors work with consortium high schools and post-secondary institutions to oversee articulation efforts and provide activities that help connect students to their futures. Through Tech Prep, you can enroll in vocational classes at Arizona Western College, get college credit for vocational classes you’re currently enrolled in at your high school, or get college credit through a variety of summer programs.
