The Vocational Industrial Clubs of America national competitions are known to be tough. In order to enter nationals, you have to win first place in the state. College of Eastern Utah has always done well in VICA nationals. According to Linda Davis, CEU cosmetology has never taken below third place. This summer, welding took fourth and diesel mechanics took fifth, which are both commendable. One of our students did especially well this year. CEU's Jessica Silver not only made it to nationals, she took second place.

A fair percentage of people go on some sort of vacation or another during the summer holidays. Common choices are Disneyland, New York, San Francisco and Orlando. Only a small percentage of Americans have passports and are able to take holiday outside of the USA. I happen to be among that percentage. I travel to England twice a year to visit my fiancee. I fly out once for Christmas and once for the summer; summer holidays lasting generally 90 days. In short, when I am not enjoying the educational experience at the College of Eastern Utah, I'm in Britain. This summer was no exception.
