Meet the Officers
I started in SkillsUSA as an 8th grader, I went to Nationals in Louisville. While there I saw so many amazing things and met amazing people. Then I saw welding sculpture and I immediately knew that is what I wanted to do. After this trip I did everything, I could to get into the welding program and I did. Then I went back to SkillsUSA for state and learned about the state officer position. I knew I had to try and be a part of this. The experiences I have had over the last year has changed me as a person and I do not see myself ever leaving this organization. I want to help students like me and help this organization grow.
I take a very hands-on approach to things. I may not be the sharpest in the class, but I am always trying to learn more. I want to be a state officer because I feel like it would be an amazing experience and the new people, I will get to interact with will be great. I am sadly not able to compete in a competition more related to my class because of conflicts.

My name is Evan LaRoche and I attend auto service at Area 31. During the weekdays, Monday-Friday, I drive 25 minutes to attend my class at Area 31, after 3 hours I then go back to my home school at Avon High School for my core classes. I have held a job for over two years and am still working at Rural King. At work I am a representative for Stihl power equipment. I am responsible for assembling products, selling, and merchandising. I love to work, even during my free time I spend it maintaining my family farm. Over the last 3 years I have also been landscaping, mowing yards and small handyman projects. It would be an honor to represent my family, my class, and my school for Indiana at SkillsUSA. Thanks for the consideration.
My name is Kristiana Golojuch. I was born in California. I moved to the state of Indiana in the summer of 2017. I attend Center Grove High School, as well as Central Nine Career Center where I study emergency medical services. This will be my second year as a SkillsUSA Indiana State Officer and member. I have made great connections through SkillsUSA, as well as strengthening my leadership and public speaking skills. I hope to continue my SkillsUSA journey for the 2023-2024 officer position.
I was born in Miami, Florida and recently moved to Richmond, Indiana 3 years ago. Never thought I would move and experience the four seasons but since I have moved to Richmond this has been a life-changing experience. Since I was a little girl, I wanted to be a first responder and now that goal is slowly happening right at the Richmond High School Career Center. In my spare time I sing, hang with my friends, play soccer, workout, and meeting new people. That is just a snippet of the things I enjoy! I am excited for a new year and adventures to come!
