Students participate in STAR Events

Greensburg — Chelsi Gilbert, Olivia Rigby, and Grant Veerkamp of South Decatur High School recently participated in STAR Events (Students Taking Action with Recognition) at Family, Career and Community Leaders of America's (FCCLA) 2012 National Leadership Conference in Orlando, Fla.

Chelsi Gilbert will be a senior at South Decatur and is the daughter of Angie Gilbert. Chelsi received a Gold Medal in Chapter Showcase Display. The Chapter Showcase Display project is a STAR event in which participants plan and prepare a presentation board and then use it to explain their chapter's program of work. The program must be well balanced in its membership campaigns, meetings, finances, and leadership, community service, and recognition activities.

Grant Veerkamp and Olivia Rigby will be sophomores at South Decatur. Veerkamp is the son of Robert and Michelle Veerkamp and Rigby is the daughter of Brad and Brandi Rigby. They received a Silver medal in Life Event Planning.  Participants in Life Event Planning must manage the costs of and plan for an upcoming occasion.  In addition to the planned presentation in STAR Events, participants must answer evaluators' questions at the conclusion of the event.

More than 6,800 nationwide members, advisers, alumni, and guests of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), gathered in Orlando, Florida for the 2012 National Leadership Conference.

This year's student-originated theme for the annual national meeting was "realitycheck." Throughout the five-day convention, participants examined and discussed several critical issues, including family, school and community violence prevention, physical fitness and obesity prevention, future career exploration and numerous community service projects. Attendees were encouraged to initiate a plan to ignite youth leadership in their personal communities.

Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), is a dynamic and effective national student organization that helps young men and women become leaders and address important personal, family, work, and societal issues through Family and Consumer Sciences education.

FCCLA Adviser Joyce Crane also attended the national conference.
