Congressional visits are an important part of SkillsUSA’s Washington Leadership Training Institute (WLTI).
The delegation also paid respects at the Tomb of the Unknowns. Kathryn, along with her SkillsUSA Advisor, Elizabeth Fala, met with Mr. Mace Flitter, legislative assistant to Brian Fitzpatrick, to discuss Career and Technical Education success stories.
The five-day WLTI is sponsored each year by SkillsUSA to provide students an opportunity to learn about Washington D.C.; how to effectively communicate with their legislative representatives; and about personal, workplace and technical skills grounded in academics.
This year’s delegations discussed the value of public career and technical education to their respective states; the quality of their education and training; their occupational plans; and, the benefits of their participation in SkillsUSA.
