Thirty one years ago the late SkillsUSA Council founder, Elmer Gates, established a program to recognize students at our local Career & Technical schools for exemplifying qualities desirable as both a student and prospective employee. The Elmer Gates Enterprise Awards are presented to students based on their scholastic achievement, school and community involvement, entrepreneurial spirit, and involvement in SkillsUSA. Our 31st Annual event will honor Elmer’s legacy of setting high expectations for students in career and technical fields.
We’ll also be honoring recipients of our PPL Scholarship, made possible by the generosity of PPL and recognizing students pursuing education in fields PPL employs.
The awards will be held Thursday, May 25, 2017 from 7:45 to 9:30 am at the Best Western Lehigh Valley.
