SHS Students Compete Well During Regional FCCLA Conference
Sherman High School Family Career Community Leaders of America students excelled in competition during the annual FCCLA regional conference in Waco, TX. More than 1,500 students from the region attended the conference, including 17 Sherman High School students.
FCCLA programs and competitions enrich student learning, improve self-esteem, and serve students with a range of ability levels, economic situations, and cultural influences. SHS students were prepared for the leadership experience by advisors Symantha Murray, Verna Sharer & Susie Tritch and were successful in reaching their goal of qualifying for state in Proficiency and STAR events.
Junior Leslie Diaz will serve as Vice President of Service Learning for the 2019-2020 school year. She will attend summer camp officer training and the national FCCLA conference in California. After presenting a one-minute speech to the FCCLA House of Delegates and being interviewed by a nominating committee, Diaz will now represent SHS in the prestigious position.
Students competed in 11 different competitions highlighting CTE skills learned throughout the year. The events help members become influential leaders in their families, careers, and communities. The top five places from each event advance to the state competition held in Dallas April 4th-6th.
