LITTLE SILVER, NJ – Fifteen students from the Red Bank Regional (RBR) chapter of the Family Career Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) returned home victorious from the state Fall Leadership Conference held in Edison, New Jersey, on November 21. Over 30 schools were represented from around the state. RBR’s students competed in six categories winning two gold, two silver and three bronze medals. The competitions included baking, fashion, ecological picture frame and banner creations, and community service. For the latter category, RBR students conducted a food drive at an RBR football game which collected over 500 pounds of food for the Monmouth County Food Bank. The Fall Leadership event also benefitted charity, by raising over $2,500 for No Kid Hungry: Share Our Strength.
