WR FCCLA headed to nationalsThe Walnut Ridge Chapter of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America recently competed in Arkansas State STAR (Students Taking Action with Recognition) Events in Little Rock.
Beth Massey, Ashton Lawson and Whitney Ward placed in the top in the state in Chapter Service Project Display, securing a chance to compete at the national level this summer in Anaheim, Calif., at the National FCCLA Leadership Meeting.
Their project focused on the "Power of Pink" chapter service project that they had completed in March.
"This project was selected because of the impact breast cancer has on all of our lives, and we wanted to raise awareness and money for this cause," Lawson said.
WRHS FCCLA coordinated two different "pink" activities. They sponsored a "Dig Pink" volleyball game and had a team in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
The cost of the trip to Anaheim to compete will be expensive, and the students will be having fund-raisers to help with the cost. A talent show, princess party, garage sale and car wash have been planned.
