On January 27, 2016 FCCLA will be competing in the Regional Culinary Arts Competition. This year, the competition will be held in Trenton, Missouri. Kelsi Milbourne (Junior) is the FCCLA president, and Dalton Lynch (Junior) is the secretary. Taylor Amos (Junior) is the treasurer. Lafayette’s team will consist of ten students, and they will have just one hour to cook five recipes. They don’t know what recipes they will be cooking or the ingredients they will be able to use until the competition begins. The team’s will be judged not only on their skills, but also on their sanitation and how well they cut their meat. Lafayette has made it to state the last two years, which is awesome. If LHS makes it to state this year, they will be competing in Pantera, MO.
Prostart and FCCLA recently paired up to do a fundraiser. They catered food to Lafayette’s staff. The proceeds were used to put heat in homes right here in St. Joseph, MO, which will be a big help to families in need. Together Mrs. Shaginaw and Mrs. Stone raised over $200. This money will be a big help to families in need. So good luck to FCCLA and congratulations to Mrs. Shaginaw and Mrs. Stone on their mild achievement.
