Six CHS students advance to state for FCCLA

Crandall High School joined more than 182,000 members across the nation in raising awareness of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) and advocating for Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) by participating in the Region III FCCLA Leadership Conference in Waco on February 5th. 

The FCCLA Leadership Conference provides opportunities through competitive events, in which FCCLA members gain employable skills and industry insight needed to thrive in the 21st Century. Members may choose from 50+ competitive events which apply skills and knowledge gained through Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) education. Competitive events set members up for career success as members explore Career Pathways and address important personal, work and societal issues through competing on the region, state and national level.

Six Crandall High School students placed first in their event and will advance to state in April. Mrs. Harrell and Ms. Diaz proudly led these teams and bragged on their leadership skills and work ethic.
