Cherokee FCCLA consistently has 75+ affiliated members in grades 8-12 each year. In 2017-2018, Cherokee FCCLA was named a Gold Star Chapter and had 75% FACS class membership. Last year, we had 16 District STAR Event competitors, 11 Regional STAR Events competitors, 6 State STAR Event competitors, 3 STAR Event State Champions, 2nd Place in Spotlight on Projects, the 2nd Place National Virtual Business Challenge Team, and 7 National Leadership Conference Qualifiers.
Since 2015, Cherokee FCCLA has 7 State Champions in STAR Events.
In 2016, we began our "FCCLA Chief Pantry." This pantry provides the backpack program for food insecure students in grades 6-12. This year, we now have a dedicated building in the outdoor classroom area of the school. Because of the extra space, we are also expanding the project to include a clothes closet.
