The Alvarado Chapter of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America attended the state Leadership Conference held in Corpus Christi on April 15-18.

The youth developed the theme “Find Your Treasure with FCCLA,” which was carried out through leadership tracks and general sessions.

Members learned how to strategically plan ways to become actively involved in issues facing today’s youth including decision-making, goal setting and career preparation.

Students Taking Action with Recognition events are the competitive events that allow students to showcase their life skills in different areas of competition.

“Alvarado FCCLA had four teams advance from region to state with their STAR event projects, said Alvarado FCCLA sponsor Margaret Alexander.

“This is the first year that all of our teams have advanced from the region to the State level. I am very proud of their accomplishment,” she said.

Michelle Barnett received third-place honors in teach and train; Camryn Little participated in promote and publicize; the team of Josh Mayhew, Aaron Rodriguez and Tara Sloan participated in junior applied technology; and Courtney Phillips advanced to state in recycle and redesign but was unable to attend.

“Our Alvarado FCCLA chapter continues to grow each year,” Alexander said. “I look forward to the upcoming years and as we strive to build a strong foundation on leaders, I strive to keep the students actively involved and participating in events that will help mold them into upstanding citizens, not only in our community, but also in our state and the world that surrounds us.”
