Mont Harmon FCCLA team comes up big
Mont Harmon Junior High School's Family, Career and Community Leaders of America students attended a National conference in Anaheim California to compete for the FCCLA National Competition. The hands-on event is held every year. Students who excelled at regional STAR events competitions held in Salt Lake continued on to California.Â Â
There were 180 students and their advisers who represented the State of Utah at the conference. Mont Harmon had an excellent showing and the following FCCLA members walked away with the medals in the following categories:
Madison Spencer, ninth grade, bronze medal in Applied Technology; Leah Brandt, ninth grade, took a bronze in Environmental Ambassador; Tanner Richardson eighth grade, received a bronzeÂ for " Promote and Publicize"; Alyissa Stephanoff eighth grade, received a silver medal in the category ofÂ "Chapter Showcase Display"; while Kaylee Hoyt, eighth grade, took silver in Recycle and Design; and Melissa Wood, ninth grade, captured a silver medal in Career Investigation.
While at the conference, students experienced leadership participation, listened to keynote speakers and also attended workshops in various areas of interest. They also took time off in between events to go to Disneyland and to play at Huntington Beach. Mrs. Larson, FCCLA adviser, said, It was very good to see our kids so well behaved and respectful. They were on time, well prepared with their projects, dressed and acted great. Thanks so much for supporting us with this dream."
With the help of Mont Harmon, FCCLA members from Utah finished with 21 Gold Medals, 62 Silver Medals, and 35 Bronze Medals.
