Pinkerton students show off their skills
Earlier this summer, the results of the national competition of Skills USA in Kansas City helped highlight just how proud they should be.
By competing in state competitions against the most skilled students from other schools, Eno said his students can get a valid idea of how advanced they are in their area of expertise.
Shawn Venti finished sixth and received a finalist certificate in telecommunications cabling. Amanda Goff and Kayla Balis finished 11th in esthetics, while Tyler Smith placed 15th in computer applications and was awarded a skillpoint certificate for having computer applications that qualify him for a position in the work force.
The Skills USA chapter at Pinkerton began about a decade ago, according to Eno, and has grown from 25 to 65 members under the direction of Eno, his wife, Sara, and carpentry teacher David Howes.
During the 2012-13 school year, the Pinkerton Academy chapter won more medals than any other school in the New Hampshire state competition, taking home 22 overall, five of which were gold medals.
