The JP Stevens Chapter of FCCLA left for its annual State Leadership Conference down in Cherry Hill, New Jersey at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. There, over thirty-five members competed in twenty-two events.While some competed in State Events such as Cake Decorating and Manners Matter, others competed in National STAR (Students Taking Action with Recognition) Events. Many advanced onto nationals in Orlando Florida because of their successes. In fact, a total of sixteen members qualified for nationals, which will take place from July 6th- 12th. On a side note, three members became a part of the State Executive Council. Juniors Maxine LeSaux, Anindya Mehta, and Ruby Kaur are the three state officers from the JP Stevens chapter. They will help organize events that FCCLA is involved in at the State Level. Additionally, Ruby Kaur has been nominated to run for the National Executive Council. As a very involved organization, FCCLA will continue to raise the bar in their families, careers, and communities as a whole to continue promoting family values.
