Dr. Rebecca Ashford, president of Chattanooga State Community College, and Dr. Bethany Flora, president of Northeast State Community College, are among the seven educators -- five from higher education -- selected for the new Leadership Tennessee class.
A total of 41 students from 11 College System of Tennessee campuses won medals at the 2018 SkillsUSA National Championship, demonstrating their knowledge and expertise across an array of career and technical skills.
Gold medal winners from the 2018 Tennessee postsecondary SkillsUSA competition, held in March in Chattanooga, traveled with their advisors to Louisville, Ky., last month for the national competition. The SkillsUSA National Championship is an annual event showcasing the best career and technical education students in the nation.
