Career Development Conference Competition

Goodland JAG-K traveled to Liberal yesterday for our first ever regional Career Development Conference competition. After competing in their events, the team brought home a second place in the region beating out 6A school, Garden City, as well as Garden City Alternative, Liberal High School, and Kiowa County. Holcomb High School took home the championship trophy this year. Goodland was the only School in the region to compete for the first time, which makes it a high accomplishment to place so well. In fact, JAG-K President Chuck Knapp expressed to the students how rare it is for a new program to place in the top 2 at regionals.

Here are the individual/partnered event results.
Britney Pummer - Regional Champion in Project Based Learning - State Qualifier
Isaiah Galindo - Regional Champion in Employability Skills - State Qualifier
Jordan Madden - 2nd Place in Math Skills - State Qualifier
Olevia Pena/Lorena Loomis - 3rd Place in Students for Service - State Qualifier
Truman Hooker - 4th Place in Mapping My Future
Aaron Doyle - Missed medaling by 1 place in Math Skills
Nicole Eli - Missed medaling by 1 place in Mapping My Future
Taye Payne - DNP in Public Speaking
Aidan Barnes/Danny Esquivel - DNP in Project Based Learning
The 5 state qualifiers will be working hard in the next month to compete at the State CDC competition on April 17th in Salina, KS. Britney, Isaiah, and Jordan have the chance to become a National Student Leadership Academy qualifier if they place in the top 3 at the state event. Please congratulate these students on their success and let them know you have their back in the state competition.
