Beaumont club excels in 2021 FCCLA state contests

A dozen FCCLA club members from Beaumont Middle School earned kudos in the 2021 STAR state contests (Students Taking Action with Recognition), and all 12 qualified for nationals this summer.

Family, Career and Community Leaders of America is an organization for students taking Family and Consumer Sciences courses. Its members develop leadership through community service and design career projects for competitive events. During the March 25 virtual state conference, the Beaumont students learned they had received first or second place, which advances them to the June 27 – July 1 National Leadership Conference in Nashville. Congratulations to all:

  • Career Investigations, 2nd place: DeLeigha Cummins
  • Chapter Service Project Display, 1st place: Maggie Barnes, Elizabeth Glass, and Alexis Goldie
  • Food Innovations, 1st place: Logan Albritton and Reagan Hammond
  • National Program in Action, 1st place: Lilly Beall and McKay Coulter
  • Professional Presentation, 1st place: Katelyn Knox
  • Repurpose and Redesign, 1st place: Brewer Conley, Katie Ray, and Tess Thompson 

“It took an incredible amount of time, commitment, and many Zoom meetings for these students to pull off their STAR event virtually,” said club adviser Anna Sullinger. “We are the only school in FCPS that had students compete. That shows the grit our students have for rising to the challenge and breaking down barriers.”
