Ste. Genevieve FCCLA Members Qualify for National STAR Events

Ste. Genevieve High School members of the Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) have qualified for national competition’s STAR Events (Students Taking Action with Recognition) this July.

Sophomores Drew Newman and Maria Kemper submitted an online entry for the digital stories for change event and were selected to advance to national competition as one of the top 15 entries in the nation. Senior Emily Abt created an event management entry and competed at the regional competition in January in Cape Girardeau. Due to COVID-19, the state FCCLA competition was canceled, and Abt was selected to advance to the national competition based on regional competition scores.

The three students will prepare digital presentations and submit online for the competitions by early July.
