Catawba Valley Community College will host the “Skills For Skills Arts & Crafts” show this Saturday, April 28, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the college’s Tarlton Complex on the main campus on Hwy. 70 in Hickory.

Vendors will be selling hand-made furniture, wreaths, clothing, skin-care products, pet products, jewelry, wood crafts, leather crafts, candles, signs and books.

Booth rental proceeds will help fund the college’s SkillsUSA student chapter for state and national competitions. The chapter has earned numerous top 10 placements at both the state and national level during the past 13 years. SkillsUSA is a partnership of students, teachers and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. CVCC’s SkillsUSA chapter is recognized as one of the best programs in the country. It is a campus-wide success winning 22 first-place medals at the recent state competition. These winners will compete in Louisville, Ky., in June at the national SkillsUSA competition.

CVCC’s SkillsUSA program is supported by the CVCC Foundation, Inc.
