Off the Field: FCCLA State Qualifiers

We’ll step Off the Field to take a closer look at some of the Republic students who are competing in non-sports activities. Our report is brought to you by State Farm Agent Sarah Rader. Talk to her about how you can save money by combining your home and auto insurance.

Eight Republic FCCLA students have advanced to state competition from their regional STAR event. They include a three-person culinary team and five other students who competed in three other events.

This is the second year of culinary competition for Abby Williams, who advanced to state with teammates Mitchell Roberts and Brian Dike. She said she was intimidated by the setting at first.

“This is a very stressful event because lots of other schools hire professional chefs to work with their teams,” Williams said. “Teams come in and look so intimidating…”

Teams must not only prepare good food, but they have to follow safety and sanitation procedures.

“At first we were all very nervous,” Williams said, “but as we continued cooking, the nerves started to settle and we all started to have a good time.”

Other state qualifiers include Ashton Rogers in Fashion Construction; Madisyn Gremling in Interior Design; and Journee Reigel, Avery McGuire, and Savannah Whitehead for their Chapter Service Project Display.
