On Thursday, Aug. 25, Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) had their first meeting of the 2022 -2023 school year.  


“We talked to the new members about the events you can do and the opportunities in FCCLA,” sophomore membership chair Jack McCormick said. “We played Minute to Win It games and that was fun.”  


They played games like elephant walk, penny stacking, cookie face and more. If a student won their round they would get a ticket to put in front of a candy box of their choice. At the end of the meeting they picked a random ticket for one student to win a candy box.


“Being involved in FCCLA looks really good on resumes and you can run for state and district officers,” sponsor Ms. Sarah Morrow said. “The officers we have right now are really invested in FCCLA and really want the club to succeed.”


Last year, McCormick said that there were only four members. Now, they have 17.


The officers for the 2022 – 2023 school year are sophomore Kaylie Phillips as president, junior Aubrey Bailey is in charge of STAR projects, sophomore Jada Frank will do awards and McCormick as membership chair. 


Students involved in FCCLA work on STAR projects for the year and eventually take them to State or Districts to compete for an award.


If a student is interested in joining FCCLA, they can email Mrs. McKenzie Geier or Morrow for more information.
