PHS students bring home state awards from FCCLA
Students from Phoebus High School recently earned first and second place awards from Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) at their state conference. The Event Management team of Brittany Berrian, Jakayla Curry, and Nevaeh Logan won first place and each was awarded a $12,000 scholarship from Sullivan University. Dexter Robinson took second place in the Job Interview category and received a $6,000 scholarship from Sullivan University. All students qualified to compete at the national conference in San Diego, CA in July.
Brittany is currently a junior and plans to become a realtor after graduation. Nevaeh, Jakayla, and Dexter are also juniors. Nevaeh desires to own her own retail clothing business. Jakayla is interested in pursuing a career in the medical field, and Dexter’s dream is to own his own food establishment and employ members of his family to create generational wealth.
Sponsor Nyarinda Aduma-Kelly said, “I am both excited and proud of this group of young people for stepping out of their collective comfort zones and doing something they had never done before. Competing at FCCLA challenged them to look at leadership in a whole new way and embrace the possibilities, and they nailed it!”
