FCCLA Attends District Conference
This past week, 23 members of the Plainview FCCLA chapter traveled to Northeast Community College for the District 8 Leadership Conference. The theme for this year’s conference was “A Whole New World With FCCLA.”
The day started off with by the opening ceremony and introduction of the district officers. The District Officer Installation was then held with Abby White being installed. The keynote speaker for the day was Vicki Haddock, founder of Transcending Limits LLC. Vicki Haddock is a visionary life and business coach, mentor, and lead-by-example go-getter. She is the founder of Transcending Limits LLC, a company that promotes excellence in life and business. She spoke to the students on how to create a vision, set goals, and how to go about achieving them.
Students then had the opportunity to attend two different breakout sessions. These sessions included Culinary Arts, Jazzercise, Dietician, Parliamentary Procedure, Animal Shelter of Northeast Nebraska, State Peer Officer Team presented on Career Leaders, and the State Officer Team had two presentations Stair Steps to Success and Next Level Leadership.
“I enjoyed the culinary session. It was interesting for me to learn about exactly what it takes to create an eating establishment. It’s much more complicated than having a menu and business name.” stated Caroline A. Members who attended the Jazzercise session loved the chance to learn more about Jazzercise, dance, and burn some calories while working up a sweat. Others said a favorite session of theirs was the animal shelter and learning about the different programs they have and how much it costs to keep the shelter running.
During the Closing Ceremony, Power of One Award Certificates were presented. Logan Jacobsen received the Take the Lead Certificate for the work he completed the past year.
During lunch, members participated in the bucket auction and FCCLA Knowledge Bowl. Participating in the Knowledge Bowl for Plainview were Jessica Booth, Brooklyn Kumm, Devon Tunender, Seth Tunender, and Destiny Rickard. The money raised from the bucket auction was donated to next year’s state officers and national STAR participants to assist with travel expenses to National Conference in July.
