Introduction to FCCLA
Farmington High School has a variety of clubs to be involved in, one of them being FCCLA, which stands for Family, Career, and Community leaders of America. FCCLA is a special program sponsored by both the state & nation to help students everywhere practice and experience leadership. Every year the clubs main goal is serving the community while practicing their own personal growth through their experience of volunteering. I interviewed Mrs. Peterson, who has advised FCCLA for 10 years, to figure out more about this club. FCCLA runs from October to early April every year, and all grades 9-12 are welcome to join. So far they have collected money for UNICEF by trick or treating(centing) for extra change to donate to kids in need. They have also rung bells outside of Family Fresh for Salvation Army while singing Christmas carols, and baked cookies for FHS staff from scratch(featured image). FCCLAs biggest event that they are most known for is Valentines Grams in February, another fun event that also helps out the community because all money made from the Valentine Grams is donated. It’s even Mrs. Peterson’s favorite event of the whole year, “I enjoy meeting new people through our service, whether at the food shelf or while serving food at a shelter, but Valentine’s delivering brings smiles to so many here and in the community that is hard to top”. Lastly, I asked her about the student leaders involved in FCCLA and she replied, “I feel such pride and joy watching our youth help others and wanting to make a positive difference in this community and world!”.
