Plano East Senior High School culinary arts students attended the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) Region and SkillsUSA District competitions on Feb. 7-9 in Waco. Students competed in culinary-related, as well as other proficiency and leadership events. Contestants who placed fifth or higher in FCCLA will attend State in Dallas-Fort Worth during April. Those who placed silver or gold at SkillsUSA move on to State in Corpus Christi later this year.
