Three members of the Glen Rose FCCLA had the opportunity to compete at the National FCCLA Leadership Conference in Orlando, FL on July 12-18. Elsa Muro, Hillary Dias, and Maria Urrabazo competed in the Chapter Showcase STAR event contest against other FCCLA members from all 50 states, Washington DC, and Puerto Rico. They represented Texas and Glen Rose well by walking away with a gold medal. They transported to Florida the 5X5’ display they had created, spoke for 10 minutes on everything the Glen Rose FCCLA chapter had accomplished this year, and answered questions. While at the conference they also elected national officers, voted on bylaw amendments, and listened to some great speakers. During their spare time they visited NASA space center, Disney World’s Magic Kingdom and Universal Studios.
