Carbon shines at FCCLA Nationals in San Diego

FCCLA Nationals took place June 29 through July 3 in San Diego, California. The Carbon School District students who qualified traveled there together. In order to qualify for nationals students had to receive a 1st or 2nd place placement at the state level of competition - which was held this past March. There were over 7,000 attendees from all over the United States; Landrie Anderson, a 10th grader at Carbon High, said, “It was really fun to meet new people from other states, compete our STAR Events, and travel as a district. My favorite part was going to the recognition session for the Top 10 finalists in the nation. My partner, Lanie, and I, received 3rd in the nation for our Hospitality, Tourism, and Recreation event. We were also the only from Carbon to place in the top 10 [in their category].”

Mrs. Rebecca VandeSluis, an FCCLA adviser at Mont Harmon, when sharing the exciting results from San Diego said, “[We are] super proud of our students.   They represented Carbon very well!”

 A complete list of results is listed below. Congratulations to all who were invited to participate and those who placed!
