FCCLA Star Events Nationals 2017
Go Fund Me Website

Bangs High School FCCLA members have spent this year completing projects that improve homes, schools, and communities.  Projects included advocating healthy exercise habits for young children, applying mathematical concepts to culinary arts industry, developing and marketing food products, and tracking food intake and physical activity to improve overall health.

These 3A high school students used their projects to compete in Region and State FCCLA Star Events against schools of all classifications 1A-6A.  Because each of the five teams placed in the top two at State, they will compete at the National Level in Nashville, TN  July 1-7.  Please help us raise funds for hotel, transportation and meals by donating to our Go Fund Me Account.  Any donations would be sincerely appreciated.

Thank You!
