Herndon Students at FCCLA Conference

Three Herndon Career Center students recently traveled to the National Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) Leadership Conference in San Antonio, Texas to compete in the organization’s Students Taking Action with Recognition (STAR) events.

Raytown South High graduate Jordan Birkes received a bronze medal in the “Focus on Children” STAR event.  Lee’s Summit North graduates Madison Froelich and Taylor Lacy received a gold medal in their “Life Event Planning” STAR event.

“Throughout the five-day convention, participants examined and discussed several critical issues including family, school and community violence prevention, physical and financial fitness, future career exploration, and community service projects,” said Herndon’s FCCLA Teacher Rochelle Netten.  “A number of relevant youth issues, such as the changing roles of men and women in the home and workplace, leadership, and obesity prevention were also explored at the meeting through presentations, workshops, and youth sessions.”

Over 3,600 students competed in STAR events.
