Rosajunely Cartagena, Elected as National Treasurer of SkillsUSA’s High School Division

Leesburg, Va., July 31, 2017 – Rosajunely Cartagena, a digital design student at Liberty High School in Kissimmee, Fla., was elected to serve as treasurer of the high school division of SkillsUSA.  Cartagena was elected through a formal elections process in the SkillsUSA House of Delegates during the 53rd annual SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference held in Louisville, Ky., in June.


As SkillsUSA high school division treasurer, Cartagena will serve as a student leader, spokesperson and ambassador for the SkillsUSA organization. She will speak on behalf of SkillsUSA before students, instructors and representatives of business and industry. She will also represent the national organization at various events.


“Rosajunely has grown to be a leader, citizen and model student through the SkillsUSA Framework,” said Tim Lawrence, executive director of SkillsUSA. “Her passion to help other students learn the things she has learned and her advocacy for the organization will undoubtedly make a difference to the future of SkillsUSA and its membership.”


To run for a national office, SkillsUSA members must follow the election process for their local training program, school and state. Once they have made it to the SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference, candidates must then pass a knowledge test, interview for candidacy and begin the campaign process to student delegates representing the 50 states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.


SkillsUSA is a vital solution to the growing U.S. skills gap. This nonprofit partnership of students, instructors and industry ensures America has the skilled workforce it needs to stay competitive. Founded in 1965 and endorsed by the U.S. Department of Education, the association serves more than 335,000 member students and instructors each year in middle schools, high schools and colleges. This diverse talent pipeline covers 130 trade, technical and skilled service occupations, the majority STEM-related. More than 600 corporations, trade associations, businesses and labor unions actively support SkillsUSA at the national level. SkillsUSA programs are integrated into career and technical education through a framework of personal, workplace and technical skills grounded in academics. Local, state and national championships, designed and judged by industry, set relevant standards for career and technical education and provide needed recognition to its students. SkillsUSA also offers technical skill assessments and other workplace credentials. For more information, go to:
