The Blanco chapter of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America attended the Region V Meeting held in Corpus Christi, Texas on February 10-12, 2011. The chapter members were among 1,200 delegates attending the two-day conference. The youth-developed theme, “Ignite the FCCLA Flame,” was carried out through tracks featuring a series of specialized workshops and general sessions in which members discovered ways to become actively involved in issues facing today’s youth. FCCLA is a dynamic youth organization that has the family as the central focus.
STAR Events (Students Taking Action with Recognition) are competitive events in which members participate at the regional meeting. These events allow members to showcase their life skills in different areas of competition. Blanco High School had three members participate at the Region level and they will advance to the State Meeting on April 14-16, 2011 in Houston, Texas:
