  • WILL BE RECOGNIZED AS HONORABLE: THE RESULT OF PREPARATION, STUDY, PRACTICE, WORK AND SERVICE IS THE RESPECT AND HONOR GIVEN SKILLSUSA MEMBERS.

 

  • TO BASE MY EXPECTATIONS OF REWARD UPON THE SOLID FOUNDATION OF SERVICE: THIS STATEMENT REINFORCES THE ATTITUDE THAT WE MUST FIRST SERVE IN ORDER TO GAIN. THIS ATTITUDE IS IMPORTANT TO SUCCESS.
