The Washington County High School chapter of SkillsUSA is headed to state competition next week with a little help from their friends. Chapter Advisor Antonio Young attended the East Georgia Construction Workforce Alliance meeting and received a surprise pledge of $500 from fellow alliance member Scott Clark. Clark, who is President/COO of R.W. Allen and Co. of Augusta, made his pledge real March 5 as Bill Chambless of the Associated General Contractors of Georgia, Inc. delivered a check to the school.
“SkillsUSA Washington County is very grateful for your generous gift of $500.00 toward our cause,” said SkillsUSA advisor Antonio Young. “Your charitable donation will allow us to purchase much-needed supplies and will help students attend and compete at the SkillsUSA state conference later this month. We’d like you to know that your thoughtfulness is truly making a difference in the lives of so many students at Washington County High School,” Young concluded.
