  • Attendance Award Overall School
  • Most FCSA (tests): 15 gold, 9 silver, 2 bronze, and 4 participants

Students worked for months, making sure their projects were ready for regionals.

“With this as my last year in high school I would say it could not have gone better,” senior and FCCLA vice president Kendall Vineyard said. “I ran over to Mrs. Sibert and cried.”

Moving forward, students will prepare their projects for state.

“Students going to state for their STAR event are taking this mental health weekend off,” Vineyard said. “Afterward, we will be getting our notes from our judges, that will allow each individual or team to look through their evaluation and alter their project however they see fit.”
