Herndon Career Center students attended Missouri Family, Career and Community Leaders of America State Leadership Conference


Students from Herndon Career Center attended the annual Missouri Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) State Leadership Conference, April 7-9, at the Holiday Inn Executive Center, Columbia. The delegates from across the state represented more than 11,500 members of Missouri FCCLA.

The following Herndon Career Center FCCLA members attended the conference:  Ashley Beamgard, Katie Lindmark, Samantha Lowe and Malena Obrist. Local chapter advisor Rochelle Netten also attended.

This year’s student-developed conference theme was “Mission Possible.” The conference featured speakers and workshops on topics such as preparing for college and careers, leadership skills, bullying prevention, and technology’s impact in education, careers, and on the family. In addition to leadership training, honors and recognition, more than 800 students participated in 33 competitive events, including entrepreneurship, culinary arts, job interviews, career investigations, and chapter service learning projects.

Katie Lindmark competed in the “Chapter Service Project Manual” event and received a silver medal. Malena Obrist competed in the “Early Childhood” event and received a silver medal. Ashley Beamgard and Samantha Lowe competed in the “Focus on Children” event and received one of the top two gold medals for state, which means they will be advancing to FCCLA National Conference held July 6-11 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Family, Career and Community Leaders of America is a Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO) for young men and women enrolled in family and consumer sciences education courses. Since 1945, FCCLA members have been making a difference in their families, careers, and communities by addressing important personal, work, and societal issues. The Missouri association ranks fifth in the nation in membership with more than 11,500 members. There are 353 FCCLA chapters across the state.
