Lebanon Trail FCCLA Student Qualifies for Nationals

Apr 22, 2020

Alec Zorilla individual award picture.Congratulations to Lebanon Trail High School senior Alec Zorrilla, who took gold at the Texas Family Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) State Competition. Zorrilla has now qualified to compete at the National FCCLA Competition in Washington D.C.

The Texas FCCLA State Competition scores were tallied from the early February Regional Conferences rather than the originally planned state conference in early April. 

Zorrilla achieved the highest rank for his research and presentation on Nutrition and Wellness.

For Zorrilla’s presentation, he focused on the impact of a vegan diet on athletes. He was inspired by his interest in leading a healthier lifestyle while increasing one’s ability as an athlete.

He started the process in October of 2019 after being inspired in Aneesha Jackson’s Food Science class when he had the opportunity to watch the Netflix documentary The Game Changers. 

He worked diligently for months on his research that included analyzing nutritional metrics, consulting with his advisors Michelle Fiszer and Jackson and preparing an award-winning presentation.  

“As an advisor, I appreciated the way he was devoted to the process of gaining knowledge and presenting it in a coherent way,” Fiszer said. “He was extremely thorough in his research, and quick to apply the feedback he sought from us.”

This year, three chapters competed at Regionals. Congratulations to all of the students that competed, especially those that placed below.
