The three senior members of the team chose to go to the competition rather than join their classmates on a senior trip. When asked if they were glad they decided to go to LifeSmarts, they unanimously agreed that they were glad they chose the national finals. Family and consumer sciences teacher and FCCLA advisor Krista Hampton was the first coach to attend nationals with the new format of written individual assessments, team activities and head-to-head competitions. She indicated that she has a better understanding now of how the format works and looks forward to building a new team with the remaining team member who is finishing his junior year.
