GLEN ROSE — Glen Rose’s Caroline Davis was elected as the Texas FCCLA state president at the State Leadership Conference in Dallas April 7-10.

Davis is the first Glen Rose High School student ever elected to the position.

“While we have had many region and state officers throughout our long history, we have never had a state president,” said Glen Rose FCCLA Adviser Tayler Sullivan. “Leading the second-largest state association in the country is a huge accomplishment and commitment.”

And Sullivan said Davis has what it takes to take the position and run with it.

“Caroline has many great leadership qualities, including patience, organization, communication skills, and she is very reliable,” Sullivan said. “She had to step up this past year to help in many different positions within the organization. Her flexibility and willingness to work with others also make her an ideal candidate for president.” 

Also at the conference, several other Glen Rose HS students competed in Students Taking Action with Recognition (STAR) events and Family and Consumer Science Assessment (FCSA) events and brought home some hardware.

Emma Parrish was awarded second place in Nutrition and Wellness, and Hannah Balkenbush received second place in Professional Presentation. Both of them will be representing Glen Rose FCCLA at the National Leadership Conference virtually later this summer.

Ashlynn Perry and Kathrynn Reedy participated by taking a Family and Consumer Science Assessment, and they both received a bronze medal, while Trinidy McCoy and Erin Outen competed in Chapter Service Project Portfolio and did well.

“All of our students that competed and represented Glen Rose FCCLA have been outstanding throughout the entire year,” Sullivan said. “They have spent many hours planning and practicing their projects as well as leading others in our chapter. As their chapter adviser, I am beyond proud of their accomplishments and their dedication to this organization. They should all be proud of everything they have done thus far.”
