Students from Lebanon Trail and Liberty high schools have earned the opportunity to compete at the Texas Family Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) State Conference after an impressive showing at regionals.
While in a typical year the event would have been held in-person in Waco, the FCCLA Region III event included a hybrid option that allowed students to compete in-person or virtually.
“As advisors and family consumer science teachers, I know I speak for all of us when I say we are so proud of the academic risks and accomplishments of all of our FISD FCCLA students,” said Liberty FCCLA advisor Jessica Fisher-Hattey. “They took a year like no other and represented our district with grace, professionalism and leadership.”
Liberty was recognized as the 5A school in Region III that collected the most donations for their service learning project "PB&J Drive for Frisco Lovepacs." The peanut butter and jelly jars food drive was organized by Mackenzie Cobb, the Liberty FCCLA President and Texas FCCLA Region III VP of Competitive Events. As part of her duties, Cobb also sat on the Texas FCCLA State Executive Council and hosted the Competitive Events for the Region III Conference in Waco.
Congratulations to all of the students who competed, especially those that placed below and will represent the District at the Texas FCCLA State Conference in April.
