What's Happening with RACTC

Courtney Sadowsky & Jaclyn Guillaume - first SkillsUSA Certified Advisors in the nation! 

Courtney Sadowsky and Jaclyn Guillaume have met all the requirements and completed all the assignments to receive a SkillsUSA Certified status in our comprehensive chapter cohort program. 

North Dakota was one of 5 states selected for this ongoing professional development program, which included 2 in-person and 6 virtual meetings to grow as SkillsUSA advisors and help us serve the secondary students in the CTE programs. Our mission is to empower students to become skilled professionals, career-ready leaders, and responsible community members. Sadowsky and Guillaume have proved that student development and career opportunities are a priority for them through their gained expertise in SkillsUSA Framework, Program of Work, and chapter management. 

We are thrilled to have them continue our program for year 2 and wish to engage as many dedicated and passionate educators as possible. 

Again, congratulations to Courtney Sadowsky and Jaclyn Guillaume for becoming SkillsUSA Certified educators representing Roughrider Area & Career Center!!
