Heritage places at the FCCLA State Leadership Conference
Each spring, students in Colorado compete at the FCCLA State Leadership Conference. FCCLA stands for “Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America.” Members compete in various events including culinary skills, child development knowledge, fashion design, cake decorating, sports medicine and interior design projects.
Two students from Heritage, Paulina Pollas and Paige Wall, competed in an event called “Chapter in Review.” Both girls teamed up and created an electronic presentation describing what Heritage FCCLA did this past year.
“As we left the conference we definitely left with closer friendships and got to learn more about each other” says Pollas.
Their sponsor guided them through the process.
“The presentation included information about events for which we prepared food, fundraising activities, and general membership functions,” says Dr. Mark McKenna, the Family and Consumer Science teacher at Heritage.
Other competitors included Hannah Deatherage (Secretary), Samantha Martinez, Ellisa Owens, Kiya Erickson, and Vlanca Jeannoutot. All were awarded bronze medals, making this the first time in over ten years that Heritage has placed at a FCCLA state conference.
