Students Compete in STAR Event Competition at FCCLA National Leadership Conference
More than 7,000 Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) members, advisers, alumni, and guests from across the country gathered in San Antonio for the 2014 National Leadership Conference, including 10 students from SPS. Kaitlynn Ingram and Tavia Powell from Rogers High School competed in the Chapter Service Portfolio project and received a gold rating. Their project focused on the homeless people living in Spokane. After calling many businesses for donations they were able to deliver many needed items to St Margaret’s Shelter for homeless women and children. Lewis and Clark students, Maddy Derby and Zoe Vietti also completed a Chapter Service Portfolio project and received a bronze rating in the event. Their project was developed when they noticed that not all students at their high school could afford lunch. This led them to design and build a food bank for students within their school. North Central students Martina Cuevas and Rebecca Petrone received a gold rating for their presentation on the True Effects of Media on Teens. Lindsey Bays also competed and received a gold medal for her project in Career Investigations. She investigated a career in gerontology which included 140 hours in a local Senior facility.
