FCCLA team takes Silver in Food Innovations at Nationals

Congratulations to Will Chrysler and Courtney Ross for earning a Silver medal in Food Innovations during the STAR Events at FCCLA Nationals in San Diego, California.

Rather than compete head-to-head, FCCLA STAR Event competitors are scored based on a rubric. More than 8,700 students attended the conference with around 4,700 competing in the various events. 350 of those participants were from Kansas.

This past school year, their senior year, was the only year Will and Chrysler participated in FCCLA and they competed in the Food Innovations category with a vege-burger that they created.

“Will and Courtney did great!” Southeast FCCLA adviser Sonora Jones said. “I am very proud of Will and Courtney and the accomplishments that they made in the short time they were involved in FCCLA! We had a great time, and we’re very thankful for this opportunity.”

In addition to the various convention activities and leadership related sessions, they also got to enjoy beautiful San Diego – a high of 76 while they were there.

“We also were very lucky to have a hotel that overlooked the bay and Coronado Island, and have a little down time without sessions to get to go to the beach,” Mrs. Jones said. “The fireworks on Independence Day over the bay were amazing.”
