Valley Girls Snag FCCLA Honor

On Thursday, Jan. 19, five Willapa Valley FCCLA (Family, Career and Community Leaders of America) members attended STAR events (Students Taking Action with Recognition) in Toledo. Taryn Irwin, Kayla Comer, Marissa Hurley, from left, earned gold for their Chapter Service Project Display “Have A Heart” and the right to compete at FCCLA state March 7-10 in Kennewick. With the help of family, friends, neighbors and Faith Circle quilt group, the girls sewed 61 flannel blankets, 68 newborn hats, 51 burp rags and collected several boxes of diapers, wipes, and formula for the 48 babies born to homeless moms in the last 10 months staying at Mary’s Place shelter in North Seattle.  Tyson Nissell and Andrew Minton, at right, helped by evaluating other school’s STAR Events projects.
