Lowndes High FCCLA Members Compete in San Antonio

| August 22, 2014

Lownds-High-FcclaSAN ANTONIO, TX – Four Lowndes High School FCCLA (Family, Career, Community Leaders of America) members and their adviser traveled to San Antonio, Texas for the national leadership conference and STAR (Students Taking Action with Recognition) competition. They were part of 7,500 nationwide members, advisers, alumni, and guests of FCCLA gathered at the Hyatt Regency Conference Center July 5-11.

This year’s student-originated theme for the annual national meeting was ‘Soar’. Throughout the convention participants were challenged to examine and discuss critical issues facing families, schools, and communities. Members also received special training on new FCCLA programs that will address financial fitness, future career exploration, and child hunger.

Lowndes High FCCLA member Madison Sackewitz competed in the STAR events competition in the Senior Interior Design category. Under the direction of FCCLA adviser Margie Chatelain she designed a craftsman style model home for a pocket neighborhood community. The model home was specifically created for career professionals nearing retirement. Madison created an original floor plan and selected all furnishings, materials, and components. Miss Sackewitz earned a gold medal for her project.

Other Lowndes High members attending the conference were Ruby Etheridge, Emily Leong, and December Moore. While at the conference Ruby served as a judge for the Occupational Interior Design competition and Emily served as a room consultant in the Culinary Arts competition. FCCLA adviser Margie Chatelain chaperoned the LHS delegation.

This group received generous financial support from Etheridge Electric, Nathan Brown’s Edward Jones Investments, and Saft.
