Marisa Singson THS past president assists Helen Thomas professional fashion photographer while Micah and Bailey Lehi videographers record a “make a wish ” experience for the Simpson family.

Assisting a professional includes holding the reflector or gobo to the model's jacket and keeping track of the equipment and time from change to change or location to location, so the photographer can shoot quick and the models stay fresh.

Teaming is more than working with your local chapter, it is also working with the professionals, costumer, stylist, make-up artist, production manager crew and getting to know the model and her family so keep all feeling valued and appreciated for the moment and the future.

A long full, yet gratifying day from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm. We so appreciated Lehi SkillsUSA videographers ( Maddison Goode, Micah Mitchell, Jaim’e Maughan, Bailey Holmes) helping us record this special event for our model to remember that her dream came true and her family to remember the positive spunky joy that filled their life because of their daughter.

Documentary still photographs were taken by former THS student and now professional Maddie Thomas and Elle Hall, Mrs. Thomas’ granddaughter. Mrs. Thomas was the production assistant with Kellie Hall production manager and costumer Camile Morris. Producers were fashion models Mini Anden and Taber Schroeder.

November 6 leadership meeting was held just after A4 class on Wednesday to determine if we were joining Lehi for the Festival of the Trees District wide Service Project. Unanimous yes!

Novemeber 30, District Wide SkillsUSA Service Project: Thanksgiving weekend our Timpanogos Chapter of SkillsUSA teamed up with Lehi and American for high school chapters to get the doors ready for wreath display. Mrs. Thomas, Aleshia Crandall and Alex Johnson came, Maddie Anderson could not make it.We started at 8:00 am Saturday morning and finished up our assignment at 11:30 am. It was great to see a large crowd helping serve those who are in need. A huge snow storm prevented the planned take down service and all travel was canceled. Our chapter is small and we loved being invited to do a district wide activity with the other high schools.

December 3 leadership meeting held after A4 class on Tuesday was held to plan the Christmas social. Plans were headed up by Aleshia Crandall.  Several TSA members are excited to join SkillsUSA from Steve Brown’s electronic and megatronics classes so we teamed up to enjoy company of both club members and to invite friends as possible recruiting methods. Set for Friday December 6 right after school. Everyone brings a treat and a friend.

Bad news is that Alex Johnson has had mono for the past weeks and is so far behind in her classwork she is too overwhelmed to prepare for the state championship.
