Gold STAR status at state

Arkansas FCCLA (Family, Career and Community Leaders of America) held a Blazin' Hot Celebration and State Leadership Meeting March 14-16 at the Robinson Auditorium in Little Rock.

STAR events evaluator teams arrived on March 14 and judged STAR events March 15. Those members included: Sarah Penn, Fashion Construction; Sarah Sloan, Illustrated Talk; Sara Roby, Recycle & Redesign, Rebecca Gill, Job Interview; and Danielle Martin and chapter adviser Diana Howard, Interior Design.

They helped to select state winners who will advance to nationals in California this summer. Later that day, Julie Jones brought members Megan Carey, Megan Jones, Haley Slusser, Hunter Horton, Ranie Robinett and Derrek Nunally.

All enjoyed the keynote presentation by Sam Glenn, founder of and also known as the Chalk Guy. A social dance followed.

Wednesday was the recognition and closing sessions. A readers theater shared by the six state officers highlighted outstanding FCCLA chapters. Black Rock was one of six honored for the 2010-11 program of work they accomplished.

The Black Rock FCCLA chapter raised money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation, with proceeds sent in memory of Bonita Ervin. Christian Ervin served as District Three secretary this school year.

The chapter also raised money for the NEA Women's Crisis Center, The Children's Shelter, a diaper collection project entitled "Every Little Bottom," and Arkansas Children's Hospital. The chapter hosted career speakers from several areas at local meetings and helped to raise money for the national project, The Children's Miracle Network.

Black Rock members Hunter Horton, Megan Jones and Christian Ervin were recognized for Power of One Projects, and they will be recognized for this accomplishment at the national meeting.

Black Rock FCCLA also was awarded the coveted Gold STAR Chapter award for meeting all criteria challenged from the state FCCLA department. Following the meeting, Black Rock FCCLA President Hunter Horton and members celebrated the many awards, as well as Horton's 18th birthday, at Red Lobster.

The chapter thanks Julie Jones, Carla Martin and Mr. and Mrs. Brooks Howard for helping support the FCCLA trip.
