Elba High School has three students who scored gold at the state FCCLA Competition last month. Junior Lauren Haley won in the Advocacy competition, junior Elizabeth Woodham won in the Career Investigation competition, and sophomore Collin Harrison won in Focus on Children competition. These students will now proceed to the FCCLA Nationals Competition in Anaheim, California. Before going, however, these students need to raise the money for the trip. The cost for each student to travel and compete in Nationals is approximately $1,200, which includes the FCCLA jackets and suits the students will need to wear. Students are looking for sponsors and are fundraising to earn the money to go. If interested in sponsoring a student or donating towards the trip, contact Christina Morgan at cmorgan@elbaed.com. Students are also fundraising by hiding Easter eggs purchased by residents, and selling cakes that will be delivered the Thursday before Easter.
