In July, Nebo School District was well represented at the National Leadership Conference for FCCLA (Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America). Twelve students, from four high schools traveled to San Diego, CA. where they were able to compete in STAR Event competitions, raise awareness and advocate for Family & Consumer Sciences Education, see all of the great city sites, and network with over 8,000 FCCLA members from across the country.
Each student first competed at region in February and then state (where they qualified for nationals) in March. They perfected their projects for months with many long hours and lots of hard work and then went on to the national level of competition.
Our Nebo students who attended, as well as their event and medal results are listed below:
From MAPLE MOUNTAIN HIGH: Ashley Chidester- Illustrated Talk (Gold), MaKayla Yates- Life Event Planning (Silver) , Courtney Eckhardt- Applied Math for Culinary Management (Silver), Cheyenne Davies- Career Investigation (Silver), Hillary Hirst- Food Innovations (Bronze), and Shania Strong- Food Innovations (Bronze).
From PAYSON HIGH: Chantelle Wilkinson- Interior Design (Bronze)
From SALEM HILLS HIGH: Noah Larsen- Environmental Ambassador (Gold), Amber Maddock- Interpersonal Communications (Silver). Two other SHHS Students, Abby Loch and Kate Maddock, attended the conference to learn more about FCCLA and to experience the organization at the national level.

This conference was an amazing experience for these students, as well as the 4 advisers (Jessica Knotts-MMHS, Laurie Hansen- SHHS, Sherry Heaps-PHS, and Brandi Fausett-SFHS) in attendance from our district. A big congratulations to these students for an overwhelming win for Nebo!
