Cambridge Hosts FCCLA STAR Competition By: Paige Ervin On Wednesday, the 17th, Cambridge hosted the FCCLA STAR competition. FCCLA stands for Family Career, Community Leaders of America and STAR stands for Students Taking Action with Recognition. FCCLA is a leadership organization that helps students develop leadership skills, take responsibility, give service, and learn cooperation. Cambridge has been hosting the FCCLA STAR competition for the last two years. The purpose of STAR is so students can compete in events in order to go to the FCCLA State competition. This year, the schools competing were Dundy County,
Medicine Valley, Chase County, Arapahoe, Perkins County, and Cambridge. This year, Cambridge had two different groups competing in two different events. We had one group compete in Parliamentary Procedure. The FCCLA members that competed in this group are Gregg LePlatt, Maria Jauken, Alex Farmer, Megan Mowry, Jenna Ebbers, Ryann Lewis, Kaelie Tomlin, and Kayla Mues. We had three other members compete in the event, Promote and Publicize FCCLA. The members were Ashley Burke, Paige Ervin, and Julia McCoy. Both teams received a silver medal and qualified for state.
