MCHS students win FCCLA gold

TOMPKINSVILLE — Monroe County High School seniors Haley Adams and Tiffany Taylor enter their final year of high school as gold medal winners in the area of Life Event Planning at the 2012 Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) National Leadership Conference.

The students competed at the regional and state level, then traveled to Anaheim, Calif., for nationals, prior to attending the conference in Orlando, Fla., in July.

The students’ project centered on the ins and outs of throwing a baby shower, including contacting numerous businesses and researching the cost of items that traditionally are found at showers.

The students also researched shower etiquette and organizational tips.

The reason?

Taylor’s aunt was pregnant at the time.

“We competed against everyone who was doing a life event planning event,” Taylor said. “The categories for STAR Events ranged anywhere from culinary to fashion design. It’s a very broad spectrum of what you can do. There is so much that you can get out of it. It’s really all about creativity. There really aren’t any strict guidelines when it comes to STAR Events.”

Students Taking Action with Recognition (STAR) Events are competitive events in which members are recognized for proficiency and achievement in chapter and individual projects, leadership skills and career preparation.
