SHS FCCLA Students Headed to Nationals!

Selah High School FCCLA students are headed over the mountains toward the Emerald City this summer as they pack their bags for Seattle and the National Conference.

After representing Selah at the State Conference earlier in March, Parker Casey, Gigi Gamache, Miley Maybee and the team of Charlee Miller and Clare Richards, all earned gold medal recognition, first place honors, and the top overall scores in their respective STAR presentation events, and will advance to compete on the national stage in July.  Additionally, Mya Nelson, Maury Falcon and the tandem team of Jocelynn Orozco and Jaylee Ochoa also earned gold medal recognition for their competitive events.  Also headed to compete at nationals is the 5-student FCCLA LifeSmarts Knowledge Bowl team of Hannah Christianson, Indiana Hilmes, Macie Ladd, Hannah Rees, and Phoebe Topper.  This team will defend Selah’s national championship after already qualifying earlier this year. 

In addition, presiding over the state conference in their leadership roles were officers Clare Richards and Parker Casey.  Richards served as the Washington State FCCLA President this past year, while Casey held the position of State Vice-President of Region 7.  Heading into next school year, Richards has passed the gavel to Casey as he will serve as the next FCCLA State President.  Richards will continue her FCCLA journey by running for National Office this summer after she secured the Washington FCCLA National Officer Candidate Position.  Also, three students from Selah’s chapter were selected as evaluators during the state STAR events.  Congratulations to Makenna Heinle, Leah Baker and Cece Escamilla for this opportunity.

The Selah High School FCCLA Chapter is advised by Shari Brink and Maggie Uceny.  During the conference, Brink was selected as a Washington State FCCLA Honorary Membership recipient, and Uceny received Master Advisor recognition.

Congratulations to Selah High School FCCLA students and advisors as they head toward the Emerald City this summer for the national conference!
