After taking home eight medals in state competition last month, Career Tech Education students from Central Baldwin Middle School are gearing up for the national competition.

Students in the Family Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) program at CBMS brought home one bronze and seven silver medals from the state S.T.A.R. (Students Taking Action with Recognition) competition, which was held March 8 and 9 at Auburn University at Montgomery.
