Sarah Parry Wins Gold at CTC Skills USA District 1 Competition


Carbondale Area senior Sarah Parry, who attends the Career Technology Center (CTC) of Lackawanna County, teamed up with four students to win the Nursing Knowledge Bowl at the CTC District 1 Skills USA Competition earlier this month. The team of Sarah, Margaret Haines, Daniel Pano-Leyva, Sade Pike, and Sage Bilko won the Gold medal in their event against the Susquehanna CTC and will represent District 1 (Lackawanna, Luzerne, Susquehanna, Carbon, Wayne & Pike counties) at the PA State Conference in Hershey in April. They  demonstrated communication skills, teamwork, problem-solving and time management skills by determining and presenting the answer to each question presented during the quiz bowl portion of the contest, as well as a written test.  Teams of students were tested on their collective knowledge within the healthcare system. Teams were judged on accuracy of answering questions in a variety of categories including:  anatomy and physiology; medical terminology, healthcare procedures, healthcare systems; employability skills; legal responsibility; ethics; safety practices; current events related to Healthcare; communication and teamwork.

“I am excited to go to states with my teammates. It was a good experience, and I am glad we were able to do this in person, explained Parry, who plans to attend Wilkes University and study to become a Registered Nurse (RN). The Carbondale Area School District congratulates Sarah on this outstanding accomplishment and wishes her the best of luck at states as well as in her future endeavors.
