Students win honors at FCCLA leadership conference

Two members of Lynn Camp High Schools’ chapter of FCCLA are state-bound after winning top honors at the regional leadership conference held on Friday, January 23rd.

Miranda Miller, a senior, earned first place honors in the Fashion Construction competition.   Miller was required to successfully demonstrate skills she has learned in Family and Consumer Sciences courses at Lynn Camp in order to create a display using samples. Using new materials, participants in Miller’s event constructed a garment or ensemble that dresses both the upper and lower body of a child or adult.

Taylor Swafford, also a senior at Lynn Camp, earned first place honors in the Fashion Design competition.  In her competition, Swafford and other participants were required to develop a clothing label, research the intended audience, design the label’s first 6-piece collection, and construct one collection sample using an original flat pattern.

Both Miller and Swafford now advance to the Kentucky FCCLA conference which will be held March 30 – April 1 at the Galt House in Louisville.
