South Forsyth FCCLA students have experienced a busy two months competing in various local and state events, which included a meeting with Georgia representatives at the state capital.

South Forsyth competed in the regional FCCLA conference and achieved first place because of the effort of 7 talented students (Madeline Grasso, Jenna Liming, Hope Huetter, Laura Kelly, Margaret Kelly, and Sarah Mele) who earned GOLD and qualified for State.

 

South won first at the regional FCCLA competition hosted by Archer High School.

Students and sponsors also visited the state capital during the nationwide FCCLA week. South students and the club sponsors, Chef Smatt, Chef Martin, and Mrs Brawner, received recognition from state representatives for the program’s excellence.

SFHS students and teachers visited the state capitol and were recognized for the FCCLA program’s excellence.

Afterwards, FCCLA students attended the State FCCLA conference in Atlanta, Georgia from March 9-11. In total, nine students received recognition at the state conference, while six earned a bid to compete at nationals.

Margaret Kelly, who received a silver medal and a spot at nationals in the Advocacy category alongside Sarah Mele, said that “the main goal this weekend was to do our best and enhance our leadership skills”. And all who attended said that they accomplished their goal.

The main goal this weekend was to do our best and enhance our leadership skills”

— Margaret Kelly

Aside from the accolades and recognition, those who attended said that FCCLA has been a valuable experience. Margaret Kelly said “FCCLA has taught me so many things. One is how to be a better public speaker. I’ve learned how to really engage an audience and from that convince them to support my cause.”

FCCLA describes itself as “a national Career and Technical Student Organization that provides personal growth, leadership development, and career preparation opportunities for students in Family and Consumer Sciences education”.

The next step for those students that qualified for nationals is to attend the National Leadership Conference in Anaheim, CA from June 30 to July 4 this year.
