CAMBRIDGE — The SkillsUSA chapter at Dorchester Career and Technical Center has been named one of 24 SkillsUSA chapters nationally recognized as a “Model of Excellence” for 2018, the only Maryland school to win this coveted designation. The school is also one of eight finalists for one of SkillsUSA’s top national awards.

One of the highest accolades awarded to chapters by SkillsUSA, the Models of Excellence program promotes the learning of personal, workplace, and technical skills outlined in the SkillsUSA Framework for student development. Achievement is measured by the effectiveness of student efforts in implementing essential workplace skills including personal responsibility, integrity, work ethic and organization in chapter activities. All 24 Model of Excellence chapters are finalists for the top national award in one of three categories.

Career and Technology Supervisor and DCTC Principal Kermit Hines said, “The desire, determination, and performance of our students is a direct reflection of our leadership, instructional presentation, and compassionate and caring environment we provide at DCTC.”
