Imps in the News



In our first year of having an FCCLA club at Cary High, we not only sent our team to State Competition where they won gold, but this freshman team also earned the right to go to National Competition in July.   Thousands of FCCLA members from across the nation converged to compete in a variety of national competitive events in Washington DC.  Our Imps Madison James and Kylie Hinz brought home the Bronze medal in their event "Environmental Ambassadors".  We are very proud of these two young ladies.  If you are interested in the growing FCCLA club please see Mrs. Hinz in room 201.  FYI nationals is in  San Diego  this year!

Summer Ventures - Chevonne Parker

Cary High was proudly represented by Chevonne Parker at the 2015 Summer Ventures at East Carolina University.  At ECU, there were 80 students participating in 6 areas of research.  Chevonne was one of 10 who participated in the bio-medical research at Brody School of Medicine, ECU.  At the completion of the research projects, the best paper was nominated from each of the 6 areas.  Chevonne successfully completed her research project on "Trichloroethylene and T-Cell Infiltration in the Cerebellum" .  Her paper was the best out of her group, which was then nominated to receive the "Catalyst Award".  Chevonne did an excellent job presenting her research project to a panel of professors who then selected the ultimate winner.  We are very proud that Chevonne was the finalist out of her group.  We say congratulations to Chevonne!  This is a reflection of the great job that teachers at Cary High School are doing.
