Students attend conference
SAN ANTONIO, Texas — More than 7,000 Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) members, advisers, alumni and guests from across the country gathered in San Antonio for the 2014 National Leadership Conference.
The conference is based on the student-originated theme “SOAR.” Ryan Hines, a senior and Taylor Edington, a junior at Newton High School, were among the members and took part in S.T.A.R. event competitions at the conference. Zara Zeller, a sophomore, also accompanied the group as a regional officer for the state of Ohio.
FCCLA offers more than 30 Family and Consumer Sciences related events, also known as S.T.A.R. (Students Taking Action with Recognition) events. These events include Culinary Arts, Knowledge Bowl, Career Investigation and Fashion Construction to name a few. Members compete at the district, state and national level.
This year, Ryan Hines and Taylor Edington were among over 4,200 S.T.A.R. event participants who competed this week in San Antonio. This is the largest number of competitors at any National S.T.A.R. events competition. The two competed in the Interpersonal Communication. Their project focused on skills and communication techniques they developed and used to strengthen communication with the student body of our school on the issue of bullying. They received a gold medal in the event.
