Members of the Sheyenne High School FCCLA chapter recently joined more than 7,000 Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) student members, advisers, and guests at the annual National Leadership Conference.

Three SHS members competed in STAR events after making it through qualifying rounds at both the district and state levels. Connor Anderson received a silver medal for his Teach and Train project, Jillian McMahon received a bronze rating for her Interpersonal Communication project, and Ben Kramer received a silver medal for his Career Investigation project.

In addition to the STAR competition, the conference provided Sheyenne’s members opportunities to listen to inspiring speakers, attend youth workshops, and network with other youth leaders. The theme of this year’s conference was “Make It Count,” which inspired attendees to share how they make it count while exploring career opportunities, developing leadership skills, and growing personally while making a difference in their families and communities.

FCCLA is a dynamic and effective national student organization with over 199,000 members nationwide, that helps students become leaders and address important personal, family, work, and societal issues through Family and Consumer Sciences education.

To learn more about how you can get involved as a student, sponsor, or supporter, contact adviser Mary Anderson at Sheyenne High School.
