FCCLA Receives gold at national competition in Nashville

From FCCLA teacher Susan Sumpter: Last week, from July 1-7th, I had the pleasure of traveling with three of our students ​(Zoey Amburgey, Samantha Alderete, and Ashley Torrez)​to Nashville, TN, in order for these students to compete at the National FCCLA Concurrence. ​On their journey here, they attended Regional Competition and won 1st place, then headed to the State Competition and won 2nd place- earning them the opportunity to attend the National Conference. ​While in Nashville we had the opportunity to see the Country Music Hall of Fame, Centennial Park, and the famous Broadway Street. We also attended leadership workshops, general sessions, and sessions on growing our chapter. On the 4th, these young ladies were able to present their project to a panel of judges for one last evaluation. These ladies received ​GOLD​ medals for all of their hard work​!​ They received a 98/100 on their rubric! I am so incredibly proud with how hard they worked, the ​hours they put in, and the teamwork they showed. ​​When you see these girls next year- tell them how proud you are of them! They have made history in Taylor!
