Wadena-Deer Creek FCCLAers host the Fall Region 6 Conference
One hundred thirty-five Family, Career, and Community (FCCLA) members attended the region conference held at Wadena Memorial Auditorium.
The opening session of the conference was called to order by Region 6 FCCLA President Peyton Deal from Wheaton High School. WDC Supt. Lee Westrum welcomed the delegates to Wadena-Deer Creek Public School and encouraged them to make the most of the opportunities of FCCLA.
WDC FCCLAer, Jessica Langer, this year’s Region treasurer, participated in the Opening Session. State officers, Hope Norenberg, Andrew Bachman and McKenna Larson assisted the region officers in introducing this year’s state theme, "Agents of Change."
The highlight of the meeting was high-energy keynote speaker, Patrick Kasper from Fargo, N.D. He encouraged the delegates to be passionate about their interests and to work at making their actions meaningful.
Members got to participate in round-table sessions on several state and national FCCLA projects. Jessica Langer presented a round table workshop on Families Acting for Traffic Safety. Hope Norenberg presented information on communicating effectively when working on FCCLA projects.
Region 6 FCCLAers contributed $150 plus several food items to the Wadena Food Shelf as a service to help reduce hunger.
The 15 WDC members who attended the conference gained many project ideas to use in this upcoming school year.
