We will offer a wide variety of course offerings that engage students and allow for exposure to academic opportunities and interests.

The 2023 FCCLA (Family, Career and Community Leaders of America) National Leadership Conference took place in Denver, CO from July 2-6, drawing more than 7,900 students, educators, and guests from across the nation. This gathering provided a valuable platform for attendees to expand their leadership skills, sharpen their talents, explore career pathways, and listen to inspiring speakers.

At the heart of the conference were the highly anticipated Students Taking Action with Recognition (STAR) Events. Over 4,300 FCCLA members competed in these events, where they were recognized for their proficiency and achievement in chapter and individual projects, leadership skills, and career preparation. The collaboration between youth and adults in managing the events and evaluating participants allowed students to develop real-world skills and gain valuable insights.

We are thrilled to share that Tessa Blackburn, Irene Lopez, Michell Barron and Charlotte Phillips proudly represented Stissing Mountain at the FCCLA National Leadership Conference. Tessa and Irene competed in the Promote and Publicize STAR event and Michell and Charlotte competed in the Interpersonal Communication STAR Event and were awarded silver medals in recognition of their outstanding performance.

The students' project exemplifies their dedication, creativity, and commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of others. Their accomplishment at the national level is a testament to their hard work, teamwork, and unwavering passion.

Congratulations to Tessa, Irene, Michell and Charlotte!
