The Georgia Post-Secondary SkillsUSA awards ceremony was held virtually on April 5, 2021 and our Lanier Tech students preformed exemplary. Lanier Tech SkillsUSA competitors earned 6 Gold Medals, 10 Silver Medals and 7 Bronze Medals. Lanier Tech was also recognized as 2021 Quality Chapter and 2021 Chapter of Distinction – Gold Level. Additionally, our Firefighting students and our Marine Service Technology students swept the state competition, earning all three medals in their respective competitions. Congratulations to all of our award recipients for your hard work and diligence throughout the competitions.
We congratulate these students for their accomplishment and thank them for exemplifying what a Lanier Technical College education is all about. Thanks also goes to their instructors who invested additional work time to prep their students and coordinate the local competitions. Thank you, instructors!
Lanier Technical College’s SkillsUSA Chapter has long been a shining model for TCSG and this is due to the leadership and vision of Kari Register and the dedication of her entire Student Affairs team. Thank you all for your tireless and excellent efforts.
