Two teams of girls in Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) will compete at State in Dallas April 11-13.
Sarah Kiser and Kendall Bedingfield will compete as well as Andrea Pina and Amy Peryam.
The two teams that made it to state competed in the event, Life Event Planning. They had to plan an event and make a portfolio showing the whole planning process including the amount they budgeted for the event and the things they decided to buy for the event. They had to present this to the judges at regional competition.
To be a part of FCCLA, students must be enrolled in a Family Consumer Science course or have taken one in the past. The purpose of FCCLA is to promote personal growth and leadership development through Family and Consumer Sciences education.
Focusing on the multiple roles of family member, wage earner and community leader, members develop skills for life through: character development, creative and critical thinking, interpersonal communication, practical knowledge, and career preparation.
