The Mustang High School chapter of the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) recently competed in the Oklahoma STAR (Students Taking Action with Recognition) events competition, with one student, Becca Pegram, placing second in the job interview portion.
STAR events are competitive events in which FCCLA members are recognized for proficiency and achievement in chapter and individual projects, leadership skills and career preparation. Becca competed in the senior division for job interview, an event that recognizes participants who use family and consumer sciences and/or related occupational skills to develop a portfolio, participate in an interview and communicate a personal understanding of job requirements.
Becca prepared a portfolio, including a job application, and expressed her communication skills and job knowledge through an interview. In doing so, she earned Silver Medal honors, and has now qualified to compete at the FCCLA National Leadership Conference in Anaheim, California, June 30 through July 4.
