Hurley attends the Center for Advanced Technology @ Mohonasen and is in the Theater Tech and Film Production program. 

For Schalmont’s Karee Hildreth, who took fifth place in the Restaurant Services competition, the regional event is all about building skills and experience.

“I competed at SkillsUSA because I want to gain as much experience as I can before I go to college,” said Hildreth, an aspiring restaurant owner.
