Chino Valley High School culinary arts students won two Golds.... no, not Olympic gold medals but nearly as prized.

In April, eight CVHS students attended the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) State Convention in Tucson and returned with the coveted Gold Chapter award, as one of the top FCCLA student organizations in Arizona.

One month earlier, the school's Culinary Arts kitchen also earned a Gold, the Gold Plate award from the Yavapai County Health Department for having a highly sanitary kitchen with no outdated food in the kitchen. An inspector makes a surprise visit to kitchens, including commercial restaurants and scores the kitchens.

Their teacher, Dolisa Pehl, said the students earned the state award because they did a superb job of documenting everything the student organization does during the school year, including campus activities, community service, public relations, involvement in FCCLA state events and more.

CVHS also had two students serving as FCCLA officers - State President Delia Sotelo and Vice President of Public Relations Jessi Muha, both seniors who have traveled throughout the state this past school talking to other high school FCCLA students. In fact, Delia traveled to New York for an FCCLA, and between that trip and the statewide travel, she missed about 20 days of school, which didn't harm her 3.97 grade point average.

Pehl has seen the professionalism of Delia and Jessi.

"One of their duties includes talking on a radio show, and the girls wear their uniforms, even though listeners cannot see them, to feel more professional," Pehl said. "That attitude reflects in their overall demeanor."

Pehl is one of the reasons the pair worked so hard in their State positions and at State FCCLA competition.

"You're happy pleasing Ms. Pehl," Jessi said. "She's one of those people you choose to please."

"She inspires us," Delia added.

Delia also earned first place in Job Interview at State and will travel to San Antonio for the National competition on July 6-10. Anyone who wishes to help with her travel expenses can make a tax-credit donation in her name to CVHS. Call the school at 636-2298 for more information.

Both Delia and Jessi completed a year of service in April, ending their State positions. Both plan to attend college after graduation - Delia at Yavapai College and Jessi at the Universit of Arizona in Tucson.

Coming up in the State officer ranks is Kayden Windsor, a CVHS student who was selected as the State Vice President of Programs in April. He attended the State Convention and competed in a category called "Mystery Chopped," in which competitors are given a list of unrelated ingredients from which to create an original dish. Kayden's group was given hamburger, oranges, raisin bread and other ingredients.

"It tasted good, but it looked gross," Kayden said.

With that experience under his belt, he can talk to FCCLA students statewide about ways to create a more appealing dish.

"It's more about appearance," he said.

At the convention, Kayden said he also became more familiar with other FCCLA student he may work with, which makes him feel more comfortable and a stronger camaraderie, he said.
