Fourteen members of the Cherokee High School FCCLA Chapter traveled to Oklahoma City on Feb. 19 to compete in the FCCLA North Region STAR Events. STAR Events (Students Taking Action with Recognition) are competitive events in which members are recognized for proficiency and achievement in chapter and individual projects, leadership skills, and career preparation.

• Competitive – individual or team performance measured by an established set of criteria.
