High School Students Place at FCCLA State Conference

Students from Cypress Ranch and Langham Creek high schools placed in the Students Taking Action with Recognition (STAR) competition at the Family Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) State Leadership Conference, held April 11-14 in Dallas.

Cypress Ranch juniors Daniela Islas and Mallory Jurena placed third in the Hospitality & Tourism event in the senior category. The pair made a business plan for a resort, which they named the Sea Foam Resort. Islas and Jurena earned a $2,000 scholarship to Johnson and Wales University for their placement.

Cypress Ranch sophomores Sam Bertalotto and Jackie Bily placed fifth in the Food Innovations event in the Occupationally Specific category. The duo was challenged to come up with a heart-healthy snack that was low in fat, to which they responded by creating a granola along with an entire business plan.

“We are so proud of these students. All six teams worked very hard to prepare for state and represented CFISD well. They have already started making plans for next year,” said Jeanie Lundquist, Cypress Ranch child guidance teacher and FCCLA sponsor.

Langham Creek High School senior Cecilia Avila placed third and junior Sarai Miller placed fourth in the Early Childhood event. The competition gave students a preschool classroom scenario and provided 30 minutes in which to write a lesson plan and present it to judges.

Langham Creek seniors Alexis Rousseau and Ashley Bridgemohan placed fifth in the Chapter Service Project competition, in which they organized, planned and initiated a trike-a-thon for St. Jude’s Hospital.

“For our first year to attend the state competition, I am very proud of the students and the work they put into their projects,” said Jamie Ramsey, Langham Creek child guidance teacher and FCCLA sponsor. “I am pleased that they represented Langham Creek so well.”
