I teach Digital Art. I was wondering what Skills USA curriculum would be great to purchase?
I am Bud McWhorter and taught at ARBurton Tech Center from '85 through '03. Retired in '09. Through the years of competition and conferences I had acquired several state pin hand towels and hundreds of national pins as well as VA state pins.i have a few other things that should be archived. I'm ' 73 and going through Shtuff of the Past (SotP). Back in 89 a student of mine won't national cabinetry, but didn't receive his gold medal on stage because of not wearing a tie...you see he is German Baptist and had his 3 piece suit on w a banded collar shirt which doesn't receive a tie . His gold medal was the first ever won for ARBurton at Nationals. He never competed again. Many of my students won other categories and state medals. We brought VICAMANIA, a band of students and 3 teachers(I was part of that group) to opening at Kansas City Freedom Hall. Please let me know if anyone is interested in the shtuff I have. I would accept a donation for it.
