Recently, Troup High School earned the honor of Gold Chapter of Distinction from SkillsUSA. They are one of nine schools across the state to earn the honor.

It took nearly a year of preparation and planning for the THS Chapter to achieve Gold Distinction. During this time, students planned activities like setting SMART goals, establishing budgets, and securing funding. For the competition, participants chose one activity that supported one area of the SkillsUSA Framework: Personal Skills, Workplace Skills, or Technical Skills grounded in Academics. After completing the application process, SkillsUSA judges selected the chapters that have excelled.

05/25/20: Michael Miller Prepares for Georgia State Michael Miller

Michael Miller is a young man of few words, but his presence makes a powerful punch like it did his first two years as a football player at LaGrange High School. Now that he is about to graduate, he knows his time at both LaGrange and THINC College & Career Academy was meaningful and helped him finalize his postsecondary plans. Preparing for Georgia State University will be bittersweet for Miller because he will miss being a member of Future Business Leaders of America and the THINC Robotics class.

This initiative brings community members into the school while promoting the benefits of reading. Each man was assigned to a classroom where they read a story and shared with the students their own personal reading history. The men also told the students how reading impacts them now and how they utilize reading in their careers. A special thank you goes out to all the LaGrange men who supported this event!
