This workshop and mud course allowed members to work on team building skills and provided leadership training.

The group also took top honors during the CTI Rally at the Georgia National Fair.

Aden McClellan placed first in the public speaking event. His themed speech discussed how CTI will help him connect with becoming a leader and working towards his career goal of becoming a Georgia Lineman.

Anna Bailey, Maci Bates, James Booth and Tianna Thrash designed a banner that took second place. Other attendees competed in t-shirt design and pin design.

Heard CTI would like to thank Mud Creek Graphics for assisting with production of the t-shirt screen printing for the design competitors.

The CTI program is actively seeking businesses willing to help with other projects throughout the school year.

Some upcoming activities include attending a two day work readiness conference, visiting leaders at the state capitol, touring local businesses and technical schools, holding a community job fair and participating and competing in events at the local and state level.
