CASPER, Wyoming -- High school memories often include friends who opted to attend vocational or skills training rather than a full academic track. SkillsUSA Wyoming capitalizes on the desires of these students by offering a venue to hone technical, skilled, and healthcare work skills, reinforce self-confidence and communication skills, instill pride in work, and promote involvement in community service.
Members of the Air National Guard will recognize that these traits parallel the Air Force Core Values of Integrity first, Service before self, and Excellence in all we do. Staff Sgt. Michael Palmer, a recruiter for the 153rd Airlift Wing, Wyoming Air National Guard determined that the students attending SkillsUSA Wyoming Championships would be positive assets for the Wyoming Air National Guard.
Airmen assigned to the 153rd Maintenance Group, 153rd Emergency Management, and 243rd Air Traffic Controllers handed out test materials to students competing in the SkillsUSA Championships. Upon completion of the competition, students talked with the Airmen about technical careers in the Wyoming Air National Guard.
