FCCLA is a national CTSO (Career and Technical Student Organization) that provides

opportunities for personal development and preparation for adult life; to strengthen the function

of the family as a basic unit of society; and to encourage democracy through cooperative action

in the home and community. Members from the North Sevier High School FCCLA chapter have

done many activities that boost the school’s pride. These students can compete at region

and state with a STAR event.

Students Taking Action with Recognition (STAR) events are competitive. The members

work together to compete at the region/district, state and national level and are recognized for

proficiency and achievement in chapter and individual projects, leadership skills and career

preparation. Seven members competed in our region in Cedar City. All seven qualified for state

competition and were able to compete with their projects in Layton, Utah, at the Davis

Conference center. The North Sevier students that participated were Tennille Hofhine (Senior) in Career Investigation -scoring Gold, Miguel Mayorga (Senior) and Mckenna Lewis (Senior) in

Professional Presentation – scoring Silver, Mckenzie Brown (Senior) in Event Management –

scoring Silver, Yulene Garica (Junior) in Career Investigation (Junior) – scoring Silver, and

Kaitlyn Brown (Sophomore) and Kaydence Ellett (Sophomore) in Repurpose and Redesign –

scoring Silver. While at the state leadership conference our members made lots of memories

that will last a lifetime. However, our advisor, Mrs. Brinkerhoff, advised that, “Whatever happens

at state stays at state!”

McKenzie Brown, who is a senior and our current vice president, planned our Preference

dance in the fall as her project. The students had lots of fun dancing to the 70’s music and

dressed in 70’s fashion. She took silver, taking second overall in the state, qualifying to compete

at the National Leadership Conference in San Diego, California this summer!

This year’s FCCLA members have enjoyed participating in many fun activities that

culminated in over 50 hours of community service and many more hours of creating memories,

building relationships and strengthening leadership skills. We hope to make more memories in

the coming year and want to encourage and welcome the new members coming in to bring new

ideas and enjoy their experience in FCCLA.
