We proudly announce the historic achievement of Micah Charles, a senior at Barringer High School. Micah has been elected as one of New Jersey's SkillsUSA officers, becoming the first student from Newark to hold this esteemed state position. His accomplishment is a testament to the dedication and hard work of Barringer's staff, administration, and Micah throughout his four years of high school.

Micah was invited to attend the Washington Leadership Training Institute (WLTI) from September 23-27. The annual WLTI conference, held in Washington, D.C., provides students and advisors from across the United States with the opportunity to advocate for skilled trades and receive advanced leadership training. Participants also explore famous monuments and museums, attend panel discussions with government officials, and participate in a wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery.

At Barringer, Micah is a dedicated Varsity Basketball team member and actively participates in several extracurricular activities. He is also a member of the Superintendent's Council of Students and dreams of becoming a Carpenter. We are proud to announce Micah's achievement of receiving the National Statesman Award, a significant milestone. We congratulate Micah on his success and wish him all the best for his future aspirations.
