Motto: Toward New Horizons
Creed: We are the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America. We face the future with warm courage and high hope. For we have the clear consciousness of seeking old and precious values. For we are the builders of homes, homes for America's future, homes where living will be the expression of everything that is good and fair, homes where truth and love and security and faith will be realities, not dreams. We are the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America. We face the future with warm courage and high hope.

Members, you are strongly encouraged to choose an event that interest you or an event relating to your future career field. After choosing an event, be sure to follow your rubric to ensure you have all components of your event. Be sure to attend all STAR Event work days and practice presenting your projects!
