Haywood High School students recently participated in STAR Events (Students Taking Action with Recognition) at the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America’s (FCCLA) State Leadership Conference, which was held in Nashville, Tennessee. FCCLA members had the opportunity to meet and network with hundreds of members from around the state. With a theme of Reach for the STARs, students were encouraged to attend general sessions with dynamic keynote speakers, participate in workshops, visit exhibit booths, and compete in their STAR Events. HHS Sponsors Mrs. Denita Jarratt, Mrs. Sarah Haynes, and Mrs. Vickie Noles each had FCCLA members to compete. There results were as follows:

Ashley Morgan and Chardae Douglas competed in the Life Event Planning, Senior category and placed 13th in state. They received a silver medal.
