Thanks to Meghan Stubbs, the Early Childhood Education Instructor and 23' Maine Milken Educator, for providing us this information. She's going to keep us informed of the student's progress while down in Atlanta!

They will have a packed agenda for the week including orientation, testing, competitions, and debriefs!

There will be a bit of fun and socializing with a state dinner, Opening ceremonies with guest speaker Chris Gardner (pursuit of happiness), Festival of Champions in Olympic Park, NBA Draft night, and closing ceremonies.

They also have the privilege of traveling with Michelle Cote who will be honored on the big stage for her award of SkillsUSA Outstanding Educator 2024.

HCTC wants to give a HUGE shout out to their community. They had a $50,000  fundraising goal to make this possible for their students and the community stepped up, as always, to make sure their students had this opportunity. Without the support and donations from the community they wouldn’t be able to have these students showcase their talents on a national level! The HCTC Staff and Students thank you all from the bottom of their hearts. These students are geared up and excited to represent their programs, their school, and most importantly their communities!
