SHS FCCLA: 8 students represented Sonoraville High School at FCCLA’s State Leadership Conference last week in Athens, GA. After earning their spot at the region competition in February, by placing 1st or 2nd in each of their events, they continued to work hard improving their speeches, boards, and portfolios for the state competition. Last Friday, they proved that hard work pays off! All 8 students placed in Georgia’s Top 10 for their event: earning gold, silver, and bronze medals. This was a huge accomplishment for these ladies and for SHS’s FCCLA Chapter. Congratulations to Ariel Davis (Job Interview), Serenity Price & Isabella Segursky (Professional Presentation), Riley Blackmon (Chapter Service Project), Joanna Gillette & Katey Ball (Focus on Children), and Tristan Bowen & Ellen Robertson (Repurpose & Redesign). #GoCoSchools #GETGCS #OneBIGFamily
