Students from Lebanon Trail and Liberty high schools competed at the Texas Family Career and Community Leaders of America State Conference and Competition in April where they demonstrated professionalism and mastery of their studies.
FCCLA is a national career and technical student organization for students in Family and Consumer Sciences. Through FCCLA, students enhance their knowledge in professional body language and dress, discover their creative abilities and the importance of networking.
In preparation for the state competition, students spent time researching, communicating with community leaders and enhancing their knowledge within their competitive event. The student projects took academic risks and their commitment was steadfast as they delved deep into their topics.
Notably, Lebanon Trail students Kay Shin Pua, Aliza Sohail and Neha Vinodh placed first with a gold recognition score and will represent Texas in the Nutrition and Wellness category at the FCCLA National Competition this summer.
Congratulations to these students and their advisors on their accomplishments.
