FCCLA LifeSmarts Headed to Nationals!

Selah High School Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) are packing their bags for competition as the LifeSmarts Knowledge Bowl team has again qualified for the national championship this summer.Congratulations to the FCCLA Knowledge Bowl Team.

After competing in the Western Regional qualifier earlier this fall, the five-lady Selah contingent placed second to advance to the national contest in Anaheim. One impressive feat for the Selah contingent is there is no school size cut-off during competition meaning the delegation competed against schools much larger, including those in other states. As part of the regional qualifying event, students were also involved in skill competitions and attended leadership workshops.  In all, over 2,300 students attended the event. 

The Selah squad headed to nationals are: Anna Tamblyn, Tessa Fresco, Grace Erickson, Alexsandra Vargas and Olivia Gargaro. The squad is advised by teacher, Michelle McCartney.

Congratulations to the FCCLA LifeSmarts Knowledge Bowl Team as they advance to Nationals!
