Current State Officers

Meet the 2018-2019 SkillsUSA Wisconsin State Officers

My name is Zak Bohte and I am honored to be serving as your State President for the 2018-2019 school year. I am a senior at New Berlin West High School. Ever since joining SkillsUSA my freshman year, I’ve been amazed at the work our organization does to promote not only CTE, but soft skills and career readiness. In the past, I’ve competed in Related Technical Math, Photography, and Promotional Bulletin Board and was able to compete at the 2017 National Conference. Outside of SkillsUSA, I am very active in my school’s music programs such as marching and concert band, orchestra pit, and symphony. I have also been accepted into the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra’s Senior Symphony for the 2018-2019 season. After graduating, I plan to attend a 4-year university to pursue a career in engineering.

My name is Shong Lee and I am your 2018-2019 State Reporter. I am a senior at Green Bay Southwest High School. SkillsUSA has had a big impact on shaping my high school courses and what I want to do after I graduate.  After high school, I am enlisting in the military. I want to sign a four year contract with the Marines then go to school for my bachelor’s degree before becoming a Marine officer.

My name is Carrigan Hurst and I am currently serving as your District 3 Vice President. This year, I am a senior at Little Chute Career Pathways Academy. A big part of my life is club involvement. I have been in SkillsUSA and Key Club since my freshman year and NHS since sophomore year. Outside of school, I spend most of my time practicing, performing, and teaching baton and dance. In the future, I hope to obtain a degree in biochemistry to become a researcher and find better solutions in mental and physical illness.

After high school, I plan on going to Madison Area Technical College for automotive service and am currently going through a youth apprenticeship program at Don Miller Subaru. Apart from SkillsUSA, I race on my high school’s ski team and go to various car shows in my 2006 EJ20X swapped Subaru Legacy. I can’t wait to see all of you again this year!
