Describe your most favorite memory as an alumni member.
My favorite memory as an alumnus has quite the back story to it. One year as an assistant leader at FSLC I had a student who was going in to compete and was so nervous because an article of their clothing wasn’t in line with official dress, so I gave this student a black article of clothing so that they wouldn’t have to worry about a clothing penalty. Each time I see this student he always thanks me for what I did for him and I love to see how such a small thing has made such a huge difference in their SkillsUSA success.
