FCCLAers attend fall area conference in Morris
More than 200 students from the Central-West area of Minnesota recently attended the Family, Career, & Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) Fall Conference at the University of Minnesota, Morris campus.
WDC FCCLAer Emma Mehl sang the national anthem to open the conference.
The Opening Session was presided over by the FCCLA Central West Area Leadership Team. The leadership team includes Frannie Bakken as the area secretary and Caitlin Savage and Elliot Doyle as members of the MN FCCLA Peer Education Team.
Each leadership team member also presented a roundtable workshop on a national FCCLA project.
The keynote speaker, Dr. Jessica Paulso,n highly encouraged students to get involved to prevent violence at all levels. She advised them to be “Up-standers” rather than “Bystanders.” Dr. Paulson went on to describe several potential projects they can participate in that will make a difference.
The FCCLA Fall Conference is a great way to kick-start the FCCLA year. Members left the meeting motivated to try a variety of meaningful projects.
