Lockwood FCCLA was lucky to have Hayden Vaughn, Region 11 1st Vice President of STAR Events, take the lead during STAR Events. We had multiple students volunteer to be evaluators and help as needed: Olivia Nentrup, Brady Waters, Noble Foster, Camille Slichenmyer, Daisy Patton, and Elizabeth Cossins. We could not have hosted STAR Events successfully without the community stepping up to help as well: Marilyn Glenn, Linda Eggerman, Carolyn Carrier, Tina Patton, Rebecca Cossins, Elaine Lovercamp, Caitlin Brooks, and Kim Easter. Thank you so much!
Lockwood FCCLA was proud to have an increase in participation this year and to have successfully hosted Region 11 STAR Events. The chapter put in a lot of work and is happy to send Rachel Schnelle, Raven Winefeldt, and Jessica Dubs to state to represent Lockwood High School. Our plans are to keep increasing participation in this event. These competitions allow students to take part in interactive projects involving families, careers, the community, and leadership.
Rachel, Breez, Raven, and Jessica got gold with Rachel, Raven, and Jessica advancing to state competition. Amelia got silver. This was the first time competing for all except Rachel!
