Family and consumer science students from Centennial and Liberty high schools competed at the Family Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) regional and state competitions this spring.
FCCLA is a career and technical student organization with the family as the central focus. With FCCLA, students learn how to make a difference in their families, communities and future careers.
Members learn important life skills such as leadership, planning, goal setting, problem-solving, decision-making and interpersonal communication.
After intense competition at state, Neerul Gupta and Rahmah Isa placed in the Illustrated Talk-Senior category and will represent FCCLA Centennial and Frisco ISD in Anaheim, California this summer at the National FCCLA Competition.
Centennial senior Jorie Fleming received a $1,500 scholarship and is the first student in the District to receive a scholarship from FCCLA.
