Three of the five Three Rivers High School teams competing in STAR events (Students Taking Action with Recognition) at the state FCCLA meeting in Houston have advanced to the national meeting to be held in Anaheim, Calif., on July 9-14.

Three Rivers chapter of Family Career and Community Leaders of America members Kandace Escamilla and Josh Gutierrez were the best in the state in Interpersonal Communications. They place first with their project of improving peer interaction at TRHS. Each high school student filled out a questionnaire to share with others in the student body to break down barriers and improve communication.

Amber (Henicke) Martinez and Darcy Orsak placed second in Chapter Service Project Manual. Their project was designed to help students and caregivers be more understanding and sensitive to the elderly, especially those that suffer from Alzheimer’s disease.

Angie Sauceda also placed second in Fashion Construction. Her short prom dress was judged on sewing techniques along with her oral presentation, budget and timeline.

Competition was among all chapters 1A through 5A. Chapter advisor Jacqueline Coquat said, “We are so excited. Imagine three teams to California. It was a lot of work and we are very happy.”

Others competing at state this past weekend include: Kailin Boltinghouse, Rebecca Donovan, Laura Rodriguez and Hailey Woodward.

Chapter advisors are Natalie Carroll and Coquat.
