GCHS juniors Jo Tratar and Madison Willis have each received a $5,000 scholarship to Sullivan University with their national 2nd place finish at FCCLA competition in Omaha, NE.
The event was one of three National Cluster Meetings with nine competitive events each. Willis competed in Culinary Food Art, Tratar in Culinary Knife Skills. In addition to demonstrating skill levels, students were also required to take a timed test on general FCCLA knowledge.
Also during the conference, the girls participated in Leadership Academy, a set of rigorous college-type courses that they will complete and receive credit for in San Antonio next summer. All GCHS FCCLA officers are participating in the Academy.
