Lewis & Clark Students excel at SkillsUSA districts

Three St. Charles West and one St. Charles High School students will join 38 other Lewis & Clark Center students who will compete at the SkillsUSA Missouri State Leadership and Skills Conference in Linn, Missouri from April 6-8. The Lewis & Clark Career Center had a total of 166 students (43% of student body) competing in their respective competitions, with 14 coming as first place finishes. Students competed in a variety of technical, hands-on, written, and oral competitions that related directly to their program of study at Lewis & Clark.

“Our St. Charles County students more than held their own against formidable opponents from St. Louis, Franklin, Gasconade, and Warren counties,” said Dr. Andrew Stewart, director of the Lewis & Clark Career Center.“Working with our students everyday, we know how talented and dedicated they are and these results reflect that.”


Students who place first or second are automatically eligible to compete at the state competitions. In some competitions, third place also qualifies for state. Eight state competitors qualified to compete based on their performance on a nationally-normed assessment in their area along with a strong recommendation from their Lewis & Clark instructor. These “straight to state” competitors and all students who medaled in the district competition and those competing at the state competition are denoted in the table below.


Skills USA winners SkillsUSA describes their organization as a “partnership of students, teachers and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. We provide educational programs, events and competitions that support career and technical education (CTE) in the nation’s classrooms.” Specific information about each competition area can be found at SkillsUSA.org.


The Lewis & Clark Career Center provides career and technical education for St. Charles County juniors and seniors from all five school districts in St. Charles County. For more information, visit lewisclarkcc.org.
