Eleven David Crockett FCCLA members ventured to Anaheim, California, this summer to attend the National Leadership Conference for the Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA).
Crockett students competed at the National Level in five different STAR Events (Students Taking Action with Recognition). Mackenzie Robinette and Micayla Lane both received gold medals and finished first in the southern region in the Chapter Service Project Portfolio category.
Crockett’s Gracie Robinette, Ali Keplinger and Anthony Ricker also won gold medals in Hospitality, Tourism, & Recreation and finished first place in the Southern Region while Jessie Stuart, Emmalyn Casey and Kobe Wilcox won gold medals in Life Event Planning and Joey Hopkins got a gold medal in Career Investigation.
Izabella Strapp and Maddie Beavers both received gold medals and won first place the southern region in the Sports Nutrition category.
The student-led conference allows members across The United States, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands to learn important skills for life, compete in community service based events, and meet other FCCLA members from across the country. Over 8,700 students were in attendance, the largest conference yet.
The David Crockett High School FCCLA had an amazing time at the conference and exploring California. The students are looking forward to bringing back new ideas to their chapter this fall.
