Woodland High School is getting national recognition.

It is one of the top schools promoting skills, leadership and community involvement.

It received the Model of Excellence Award in the SkillsUSA competition.

We went to Kimberly Miller’s class at the high school to talk to kids involved and to see their skills in action.

SkillsUSA is a way for kids to get real-world experience at an early age. The Model of Excellence program represents the best in community involvement.

Students learn personal, workplace and technical skills in our community. And students learn work ethic and pride for their community.

Every ninth-grade freshman got involved and plan to come back next year.

Organizers say these students represent our future workforce and the future of our community.

Mock environments test student’s skills for their life in the real-world.

The Woodland kids know their town and the people who live there and appreciate the support.
