Congratulations goes to the Allyson Cherney and Zoey Onley (left to right in the attached picture) from the IKE FCCLA Club who received a GOLD at Region 7 Regional FCCLA STAR Events on January 23rd at Toppenish High School. Next, Allyson and Zoey will compete at the FCCLA State Leadership Conference that will be held on March 8-10th in Kennewick, WA.
The following IKE FCCLA chapter members helped run the regional star events by being a student judge, timer or room consultant at the regional star events competition. They were Ryann Fridley, Jenifer Cherney, and Tails Griffith (left to right in the attached picture). They will also be attending the FCCLA state leadership conference and helping to run the Washington state STAR events competition in March.
Our community worked with Gesa Credit Union and the Yakima Schools Foundation to create "Comfort Kits" for students in need. Gesa set up collection bins at their two branches (soon to be three!) in Yakima. The Gesa staff, Yakima School District staff and members of the community all donated to the cause. One community member, Ken Coulter, donated 400 items and donated his time to stuff the 1000 kits. Thank you Ken!
