They each won a $1000 scholarship to Johnson and Wales University.
Vanessa Stewart, Tori Garcia and Amanda Ginster also placed first in Interpersonal Communications. Their project was helping TRHS students “Think Once, Think Twice, Think Disabilities” to create a more empathic environment for those on our campus with educational and physical disabilities.
Three Rivers Middle School also qualified the team of Hunter Haag, Lillie Council and Gabby Sandoval in Chapter Service Project Manual. They helped plan and purchase Christmas gifts for the Council family because Mrs. Council was unable to do so because of her terminal cancer.
Sophia Sulaica and Kristan Pullin placed fifth in Focus on Children after preparing healthy, nutritious snacks for Our Savior Lutheran Church in the fall.
Also participating at the state level in the senior division were Alex Guerrero and Dannelle Gentry in Chapter Service Project Manual called Stitch a Memory. These girls prepared activities for South Texas Children’s Home to help them develop relationships and create lasting memories.
Cheyenne Pullin bragged on all that FCCLA has done this year in an event called Chapter Showcase Manual.
