While most College of Eastern Utah students went home for their summer vacations, students from several programs competed on national levels and brought accolades back to the campus.
Five students successfully competed in the Skills USA Championship competition at the National Leadership and Skills Conference held in Kansas City, Mo.
Lane J. Pell and Jonathan B. Arriola were awarded the Gold Award in radio (audio) production.  
Kaitie Young and Mason J. Winters were awarded silver for prepared speech and welding respectively while Tiffany Hansen was awarded bronze in cosmetology. All five students placed first in Utah in their respective competitions earning the right to compete in the national arena.
The three-person CEU Phi Beta Lambda team (the college version of Future Business Leaders of America) attended the National Leadership Conference in Chicago, Ill., where its business ethics team took eighth place. The team included Natalie Rowley, Daren Larsen and Randon Kerr. The team was required to complete a case study and present an oral presentation. They placed first in Utah to progress to the national competition.
Three  DEX (Delta Epsilon Chi) students represented CEU at the national marketing fraternity which represents colleges throughout the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico. The national event was held in Orlando, Fla., and attended by over 2,500 competitors from 2- and 4- year colleges.  
In the three-day competition, students competed in at least two and sometimes three elimination rounds. All three of CEU’s competitors received national recognition.
Kerr represented CEU again and placed second nationally in travel and tourism management and the business law team of Larsen and Kellan Stevens placed in the top 10 in their event.
