Tim Lawrence is about to retire as SkillsUSA’s executive director, but that’s not stopping him from earning more awards. Recently in Kazan, Russia, WorldSkills president Simon Bartley presented Lawrence with the WorldSkills Fellowship Award during the international competition.
The award is given “in recognition of an outstanding contribution to World- Skills and a commitment to inspiring and advancing the prospects of young people around the globe.” This marks only the second time in the 73-year history of WorldSkills that the award has been given.
SkillsUSA has been sending a team to the biennial WorldSkills Competition since 1975. See Page 11 for a full report on the 2019 WorldSkills USA team.
