Family and Consumer Science Students pick up Region 15 Awards

 

FCCLA Jackson Roberts Baker

KENTUCKY (2/15/13) – FCCLA members from Edythe J. Hayes Middle School and Tates Creek High School represented Fayette County in the Region 15 STAR competition Feb. 9, winning four events.

In Family, Career and Community Leaders of America, an organization for students taking Family and Consumer Sciences courses, teenagers develop leadership through community service and create career projects for competitive events through STAR – Students Taking Action for Recognition.

Hayes students Clif Jackson, Trey Roberts and Kasai Baker took first place in the Environmental Ambassador category for their Shoe4Africa project, in which they collected gently used running shoes to reduce their carbon footprint and help prevent malaria and foot diseases in Africa like hook worm. Savannah Roberts also received top honors in Recycle and Redesign for creating baskets from newspapers. For more details, contact club adviser Andrea Baker.

FCCLA Roberts Shalash

Tates Creek High’s Amani Shalash won first place in Nutrition and Wellness after she tracked her eating and exercise for a month, then created and implemented goals to improve her health. Jenna Warren and Alison Hadady also took highest honors in Applied Technology for their family genealogy project and Skype communication. For more information, contact club adviser Mary Ann McGlothlin.
