At the June 4 Paramount City Council meeting, members of the Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America Club from Paramount High School were recognized for their successes in regional, state, and national competitions.


Four students have qualified for the nationals, which will take place in Anaheim with thousands of participants from all 50 states and Puerto Rico. (Every time Paramount’s FCCLA has gone to the nationals, they have come home with either gold or silver medals.)


Aileen Tanimoto was honored for being a club advisor for 40 years at PHS, and is the longest-serving FCCLA advisor in California. The council provided 300 city pins for the students to trade with their fellow competitors.
