MITT Wins Big

Originally posted: April 13, 2018

It was a remarkable showing for MITT at the 21st annual Skills Manitoba event as its team of 19 competitors earned 13 medals. MITT’s presence on the Skills Manitoba stage was further enhanced with its expanded hosting duties for 2018: along with the Industrial Mechanic/Millwright and IT Network Systems Administration competitions, MITT also for the first time hosted the Electronics event. Fittingly, MITT’s own Sudeep Ghotra won the latter competition.

“Wow, what an exciting bit of news to receive on a Friday; congratulations to all our competitors and coaches from yesterday’s Skills Manitoba competition,” says Ray Karasevich, President and CEO. “I had the opportunity to join Grace Leduc and Frank Gallo touring some of our competitions and meeting with our participants—what a brilliant group. I hope you are as proud of your achievements as we are.”
