Evans High School FCCLA members were busy at the 2012 FCCLA State Leadership Conference and STAR Events competitions in Athens recently. The eight delegates served as ushers for the opening session. Taylor McChesney and Alex Petsko scored 85 percent or higher on the Statesman's Test to earn them recognition on stage and received an FCCLA lapel pin. The Evans High FCCLA Chapter earned recognition as being an Honor Roll Chapter and was recognized on the screen many times for their participation in many state and national projects. Competing in STAR Events were Jose Ayala, Samantha Paschal and Joseph Granados (culinary arts) who earned a bronze medal; Katlyn Gates (National Programs in Action) who earned a gold medal; Taylor McChesney (Illustrated Talk) who earned a gold medal; Alex Petsko (Chapter Showcase Manual) who earned a gold medal and Gabby Hightower and Mariela Garcia (Focus on Children) who earned a gold medal. Katlyn, Taylor and Alex will advance to compete at the National STAR Events Competition in Orlando, Fla., in July. They were accompanied by their advisers, Sabrina Morgan and Gail Sims.
