Evanston High School’s Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) recently competed in Cheyenne at the state FCCLA competition. Each student competed in an event related to family and consumer science.

The students competing at state were Braxton Hutchinson and Rhenona Powers (baking), Laural Schmidt (career investigation), Alexis Frongner and Eryn Symes (recycle and redesign), Anya Fladland (job interview) and Samantha Sackett (interpersonal communication).

Students also attended leadership workshops and networked with students from across the state. Throughout the year, FCCLA has held activities that promote families and involvement in the community.

There were two students who qualified for the National FCCLA Competition in Nashville, Tennessee, in July. Erin Symes and Alexis Frongner will represent Evanston High School and the state of Wyoming with their recycling project. While in Nashville they will have the opportunity to attend workshops, compete, help with other events and see some Nashville attractions.

The FCCLA club will host a garage sale fundraiser on May 20, at the Bowery at 251 Elm St., in Evanston. The club is asking community members to donate items for the sale. You may email [email protected] to arrange for drop-off or pick-up on or before the May 19.

Proceeds will help toward travel expenses.
