The Regional Family, Career and Community Leaders of America Conference proved very productive for the Sulphur Bluff High School FCCLA Chapter. Two SB students qualified to compete at the state contest after earning top honors in their categories at region.


Several others earned silver and gold certificates in regional leadership competition, one local supporter was recognized and at least two student served in regional leadership positions.

“This meeting was such a great learning experience for all the members involved, and I commend each one of them for their success,” stated Janie Vandiver, SB FCCLA Chapter advisor.

Sarah Williams went home from the regional contest with a first place plaque for the outfit she made featuring comic strips for the recycle/redesign STAR Event contest.

Casey Gore won first place in the STAR Event fashion construction contest after earning all 100s with the formal high-low satin gown with sweetheart top and hand-sewn crystal beading and crushed velvet cape with hood, inside pockets, a shanked Swarovski crystal clasp and satin lining he spent 37 hours making.

Kadee Anderson also earned a fifth place plaque in the illustrated talk STAR Event contest, held during the regional meet hosted the first week of March in Irving.

Williams and Gore’s top marks ensure they will advance to and compete at the Texas State FCCLA Leadership Conference in Dallas April 11-13.

Katelyn McDonald, Region III vice president for Parliamentary Law, worked with the other 16 region officers to plan and carry out the regional meeting. Her main responsibility was presiding at the House of Delegates session, where new officers were elected. At the last general session, McDonald relinquished her present office to the new officer.

Megan Self also served as voting delegate for the SB FCCLA Chapter and attended the House of Delegates session at the regional meet.

Also during the last general session at the meet, Katelyn’s mother, Margarett McDonald, was honored with a certificate recognizing her as one of only five individuals nominated and chosen by Region III to be an honorary member of the organization. Nomination for the honor is based on support and dedication to the FCCLA organization. At the state convention next month, Mrs. McDonald will also be recognized along with all the other recipients from other regions.

SBHS graduate Elizabeth McDonald, a former region and state FCCLA officer herself, served on the nominating committee at the House of Delegates and interviewed the newly-elected officers for the placement of their offices at the regional conference.

In the “Leadership Enhancement Opportunities” testing, Kendra Jock placed gold in job interview; Skylar Evans gold in the creed, mission and purposes; Angie Alvarez gold in consumer math; and Judy Brown placed silver in etiquette.

The Sulphur Bluff FCCLA Chapter, in a press release, extended special thanks to Janiece Joslin and Margarett McDonald for their help and support.
