Guthrie High School FCCLA students shine at state competition

Six students from Guthrie High School’s FCCLA (Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America) chapter showcased their talents and innovative projects at the FCCLA State Competition, held recently in Stillwater. The students’ dedication and hard work paid off as they presented their projects, earning recognition for their creativity and excellence.

Alexandra Wilkins, a seasoned competitor in Fashion Construction level 3, wowed judges with her meticulous craftsmanship. She crafted stunning red wide-legged trousers paired with a coordinating white corset featuring intricate draping and boning. This marks Wilkins’ third consecutive year securing a spot in the Top 3 at the state level, showcasing her consistent excellence and skill in fashion design.

Ashayah Thirsty and Lovlynn Monday collaborated in Event Management level 3, conceptualizing and planning Guthrie High School’s talent show. Their innovative approach will not only entertain audiences but also serve as a successful fundraiser for the Guthrie Drama Department.

Katelyn Hanthorn, competing in Food Innovations Level 3, impressed judges with her unique snack creation tailored for teenagers. She designed and market-tested a chocolate hummus and banana snack bite, demonstrating her ingenuity and understanding of market trends. Hanthorn’s project secured her a spot in the Top 3, showcasing her potential in the culinary industry.

Angel Allen and Demarcus Officer, competing in Food Innovations Level 2, tackled the challenge of creating a healthy snack alternative for teenagers. Their innovative use of chickpeas resulted in a delicious and nutritious snack, providing a healthier option compared to traditional spicy chips. Their project earned them a place in the Top 3, reflecting their commitment to promoting healthier eating habits among youth.

While the official rankings will be revealed at the FCCLA State Convention in Tulsa next week, students who clinch 1st and 2nd place will earn the prestigious opportunity to represent Guthrie High School at the FCCLA Nationals in Seattle, Washington. This recognition not only celebrates the students’ achievements but also highlights the exceptional education and support provided by Guthrie High School’s Family and Consumer Science program.

As these talented students await the final results, they continue to inspire their peers and demonstrate the limitless possibilities within the realm of Family and Consumer Sciences. Congratulations to all the participants for their outstanding achievements at the FCCLA State Competition, and best of luck to those advancing to the national stage!
