Led by Peggy Reilly-O’Brien, Dental Assisting and Health Education teacher at Cape Cod Regional Technical High School in Harwich, the student members of the local SkillsUSA chapter held a community service fundraiser on February 9th as part of a SkillsUSA competition. The Dream Builders Breakfast raised over $1,200 for their chosen charity, Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod, which will help build more affordable homes on Cape Cod. SkillsUSA offers many opportunities for growth through competitions. The Cape Tech students are going to compete at the state level in April and hope to go on to the national competition in Louisville, Kentucky.
