At the September Board of Education monthly meeting, school board members recognized a West Bladen student that received a National award this summer at the FCCLA National Conference.

Allie Marsh, a sophomore at West Bladen, received a Silver medal in the Life Event Planning category.  An event is defined as any upcoming occasion that will bring changes and/or new experiences and accompanying financial challenges. The title of Allie’s project was “Cheers to 16 Years!” a birthday celebration. She compared local venues, DJ entertainment, food, and decorations to stay within a set budget. 

In April, Allie competed at the state level with “Cheers to 16 Years!” and won a Silver medal, qualifying her to compete at the national level.  Allie was one of 3,600 students competing at the national level.

Allie was presented her national medal at a recognition ceremony honoring all participants at the Washington DC National Convention Center. 

The West Bladen FCCLA advisors are Debra Kinlaw and Gail Marsh.
