Acorn FCCLA’s MaKenna Goss recently traveled to Nashville, TN to compete in the Star Event Illustrated Talk. Students had to place in the top two in the state of Arkansas in order to move on to compete at the event, a feat that MaKenna accomplished. This was her first year to compete in any FCCLA event and she had tremendous success. MaKenna has earned a Gold Medal at the District, State, and now the National level. MaKenna’s project highlighted that having strong family relationships was the true meaning of success, versus materialistic values and focusing on career and money.
MaKenna would like to thank the sponsors that helped her go to the National FCCLA Leadership Conference. Local sponsors included Bear State Bank, Union Bank, Diamond Bank, and Walmart, each making it possible for MaKenna to compete in Nashville and represent her community and school. She would also like to thank all of those who helped with fundraisers and those who purchased and participated in fundraising events.
MaKenna is the 15yr old daughter of Greg and Kim Goss of Mena.
