Kids in the Community – Skills Group Team at CCCTC

Presented by Kim McDonald: State Farm Insurance

Congratulations to the Skills USA group of young students at the Clearfield County Career and Technology Center in Clearfield, they are this week’s Kids in the Community!

 These young people helped the local, non-profit charity, REST Inc. REST exists to support informal kinship families, like grandparents raising grandchildren.  The teens involved in this outreach are as follows:  Savannah Anderson (President), Karly Framer, Chloe Rowles, Will Rainey, Raven Myers, Lydia Swatsworth and Makenzie Hullihen.

Led by Advisor Mick Jerome, these young leaders went before the Clearfield County Commissioners to advocate for kinship families, educate the community about the strengths and challenges these families face, and bring general awareness to an important issue.  Additionally, they secured space at the CCCTC to hold the First Annual REST Kinship Family Christmas party, planned and prepared the food, and participated as “Santa’s Helpers” for nearly 100 kinship family members.  Now, this group is working to hold a Volleyball Tournament fundraiser for REST in order to meet the needs of kinship families across the county.
