Bradley and Kayla received a Silver medal in Life Event Planning at the conference. Life Event Planning is an individual or team event that recognizes participants who apply skills learned in Family and Consumer Sciences courses to manage the costs of an event, and it is one of 32 national STAR Events available to FCCLA students. Approximately 4,100 students advanced from the local, regional, and state level of STAR Events to the national meeting. Bradley is the son of Kim Gordon of Vardaman, and Ernie Gordon of Bruce. Kayla is the daughter of Keith and Michelle Gaskin of Pittsboro.
They will both be in the 10th grade at Vardaman High School this fall.
