Tri-Central FCCLA group named Gold Honor Chapter

INDIANAPOLIS — Tri-Central High School students were among more than 900 people who gathered in Indianapolis last month for the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) 2014 State Leadership Conference.

TCHS teacher Jill Reehling attended the conference March 6 through 8 with students Oriana Barnard, Lucretia Gilsinger, Lea Logan, Makayla Tharp and Zixuan Zhao.

The students competed in the state FCCLA projects and Students Taking Action with Recognition events, which allow students to demonstrate skills learned in the classroom, share information about completed service projects and highlight important events.

Logan and Tharp received gold medals for their “life event planning” project and “focus on basics” project. The girls’ top score qualified them to compete with their life event planning project at the FCCLA National Leadership Conference in July in San Antonio, Texas.

Gilsinger received a bronze medal for her “recycle and redesign” project. Zhao earned a perfect score and gold medal for her “beyond the basics” project.

The rest of the conference included a culinary arts skills competition, informational sessions and a presentation by keynote speaker Michael Cuestas. Those in attendance at the conference raised more than $500 for Share Our Strength, the national FCCLA outreach project.

The Tri-Central FCCLA chapter received the top Gold Honor Chapter recognition, which is awarded to those who actively participate in the promotion of goals and objectives of FCCLA. Becoming a Gold Honor Chapter requires a great deal of work and involvement on the part of the chapter members.

Logan also was elected the 2014-15 Indiana State vice president of programs. She will represent the school throughout the next school year as she leads statewide Indiana FCCLA activities.

For more information on FCCLA and Family and Consumer Sciences, contact Jill Reehling, Tri-Central’s Family and Consumer Sciences teacher. Visit www.indianafccla.org, follow the group on Twitter @indianafccla or like the “Indiana FCCLA” Facebook page to learn more about the organization.
