His commitment didn’t stop there though, he also transported the heifers to and from the show, giving up his weekends to help students at Rutland High and Middle School succeed. He has been a valuable asset to the Agriculture Departments at Rutland High and Middle School. Mr. Newberry helped train the Jr. and Sr. Dairy Evaluation teams for Rutland High and Middle School.

Graphics students decided their community service and career pathway showcase presentations would center around texting and driving at this year’s SkillsUSA State Leadership Conference, held in March. Students created an interactive PowerPoint presentation, pledge cards, pledge banner and an interactive display stating the dangers or texting while driving.
Keefer Nelson (Senior at Central High School), Jonica Hill (Senior at Central High School) and Taylor Raines (Senior at Central High School) presented their project in Career Pathway Showcase. They highlighted items they made in class to market their no texting and driving theme. They placed second in their event.

HCCA SkillsUSA Nationals Bound!
Nolan Gilmore will be competing at the SkillsUSA National Leadership Conference June 24-29 in Advertising Design. Nationals takes place this year in Louisville, KY. Nolan placed second in the state of GA and is looking forward to representing our state at Nationals.
Nolan is a senior at Rutland High School and attends Hutchings CCA in the Graphics Pathway. He scored highest on our End of Pathway Test and has the highest average in the class. He will be starting college this summer.
The Graphics Pathway would like to thank Navicent for their generous pledge of $1000 to help with costs for this trip. We also want to thank PIAG (Printing and Imaging Association of GA) for their scholarship donation of $250 as well. Without these donations, it would be much more difficult to send students to this level of competition.
Please wish Nolan luck as we travel to KY representing GA this summer!
