Metro Technology Centers Entrepreneurship Program students prepared for an upcoming SkillsUSA competition by mentoring 8th grade students from Millwood Public Schools. Three students Metro Tech students in particular – Jon’a King, Amari Stewart and Micha Ramoz – led the community service project, which they will present state SkillsUSA competition in Tulsa April 23 - 25.
The project included designing t-shirts for the 8th graders to wear during four leadership training and mentorship sessions at Millwood; and it ended with the 8th graders presenting a project of their own. The winning team received medals and $100 cash.
Stewart - who divides her time between the Entrepreneurship Program at Metro Tech and classes at Southeast High School – said the project was fun and educational.
“We taught them everything we do to prepare for our own competition. They surprised us with how prepared they were on presentation day; they all did a great job!”
