Western Wayne students participated virtually in the FCCLA National Leadership Conference held the first week of July in Nashville, Tennessee, this past summer.
According to FCCLA’s official website, “More than 4,500 members, advisers, and supporters from across the country participated in FCCLA’s first-ever Hybrid National Leadership Conference. Whether attending virtually or in-person, FCCLA challenged all conference attendees to grow “Beyond Measure” through career exploration, virtual networking, Competitive Event recognition, professional development opportunities, student-led leadership sessions, and more!”
Western Wayne students Zoey Goldman and Kennedy Mistishin presented their community service project which involved a very successful Breakfast with Santa for our local community. The girls placed in the top five percent at nationals.
Fellow classmate Adelaide Treibley did a public speaking presentation on the effects of COVID on professional employment. She placed in the top ten percent at nationals.
“I enjoyed preparing my presentation and participating in nationals this year,” Adelaide said. “I look forward to another great year in FCCLA.”
The FCCLA program helps students to develop skills for life through: character development, creative and critical thinking, interpersonal communication, practical knowledge, and career preparation.
