Competing with over 4,200 STAR Event participants in Nashville, Ashley achieved a Gold Medal and 10th place in her category, which is a wonderful achievement!
District wide, 13 students from all 5 high schools represented Nebo extremely well! These students first competed in a variety of projects starting at the region level, then advancing to state competitions, where they then qualified for nationals.
Besides competitions, the students and advisers who attended the conference were able to network with the nation, attend workshops for leadership development, and have a blast enjoying the sounds of 'Music City'. Congratulations to these students on their amazing accomplishments! Way to represent our school so well Ashley!!
