SPHS Skills USA Chapter Continues to Shine

Undaunted by Virus, SkillsUSA South Pasadena Continues to Shine
Although the physical State conference was a casualty of the pandemic, the SkillsUSA organization recently honored the South Pasadena High School SkillsUSA chapter with several awards. The chapter earned a Gold Level of Distinction in the Chapter Excellence Program, which requires members to plan and execute a year of activities based on the SkillsUSA Program of Work using SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, time-bound) goals.
Member Tuva-Helene Kateraas’s pin design was chosen to represent the entire state of California at the State conference. Jolene Lee, chapter president, was elected in the Virtual State Delegation session to serve on the SkillsUSA California State Officer Team for 2020-2021.
Henry Balding, Jolene Lee, Luyang Zhang and Andrew Cheung were profiled in the Spring issue of SkillsUSA Champions magazine, currently available on the SkillsUSA website:; or in the form of a downloadable PDF:
Congratulations to all the hard-working students and their advisor, SPHS CTE teacher Sandra Matson-Fennell.
Go Tigers!
