  Millbrook’s chapter of Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) recently earned multiple first place wins at the state competition in Greensboro, North Carolina. It will later be taking many of their members onto Seattle, Washington later this year to compete in nationals.

  FCCLA is a nationally recognized Career and Technical Student Organization (CTE) in which students are granted opportunities to pursue careers that support families and work to make a difference in their communities. Sophomore and second place winner Lizzy Cable explains, “In FCCLA we participate in various activities and events that promote personal growth, leadership development, and community service.”

  Students work together in groups to complete a project relating to a family consumer science. The project is then reviewed against other student projects by judges at competitions.

  Freshman and first place winner Allaire Klein explained her group’s project, “When my group and I researched, we came to the conclusion that we wanted to base our project around kids, and specifically hygiene around children.” After spending a few weeks researching and working on their project, Allaire’s group went to different elementary schools to talk to young students about basic hygiene practices. 

 First place groups from Millbrook that will be going to Seattle include:

  • Margaret Wilson, Megan Barghout, and Nadeen Elkassem
  • Cloey Frankel and Jorjoh Samba
  • Messiah Jahmere-Damien, Bryce Williams and Kelien Butler
  • Sadie Kelsey, Anéssa Myers, and McKenzie Delaney
  • Kathryn Hagau and Emily O’Hara
  • Juliet Tutino, Erin O’Connor, and Campbell O’Connor
  • Carson Dunton, Lauren Bailey, and Allaire Klein
  • Jordan Horwitz and Grace Edens
  • Riley Dunton 

  Let’s wish Millbrook’s winners good luck in Seattle!!
