Skills USA Banner Year!

It was another banner year for Middle Creek at the SkillsUSA State Conference in Greensboro. 54 students participated in this year’s State Conference, competing in a vast array of competitions, against the best of the best from around the state, and each of our Mustangs represented their school with class, dignity, and honor.
