Wadena-Deer Creek Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) members attended the National Leadership Conference in Anaheim, Calif., June 30-July 4 with approximately 8,000 delegates from across the country.
Wadena-Deer Creek students Casey Bounds, Morgan Grangruth, Elliot Doyle, and Angela LeComte attended to compete in their STAR (Students Taking Action with Recognition) events.
