Black Rock students
observe FCCLA Week

Members of the Black Rock chapter of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America joined over 225,000 members in celebrating National FCCLA Week Feb. 11-17.

This year's national theme, LOL, or Live Out Loud, emphasizes that since 1945, members have experienced the ultimate leadership experience through Family, Career and Community Leaders of America. During National FCCLA Week, members planned and carried out activities to address teen and societal concerns and showed how Family and Consumer Sciences skills helped them to become ultimate leaders.

The Black Rock FCCLA chapter celebrated National FCCLA Week by holding an event each day of the week. Sunday, Feb. 11, was Family Share and Prayer Day. Monday was Banking for Babies Day. On this day, members received a penny bank in which they donated their change. Over $100 in loose change was gathered to support the March of Dimes Foundation. Miranda Redd gathered over $24 dollars, making her the highest donor to the March of Dimes Foundation.

Tuesday was Random Acts of Kindness Day. Wednesday, Feb. 14, was Have a Heart Day. Members bought and sold heart necklaces, with all proceeds going to the American Cancer Society. Teigha Dye and Tommy Lawrence collected the most hearts, making them the king and queen of hearts. Laura Carey completed correctly a Valentine's Day quiz, earning a prize for her success. Black Rock earned over $125 for the American Cancer Society with this event.

Leadership Day was Thursday with members attending the District III Meeting at Valley View High School including Matt Adams, Cord Boggs, Holly Beasley, Brandon Gray, Amber Lamb, Mallory McGinnis and Amy McKenzie. Callie Miller, Tiffany Pentecost, Miranda Redd, Jessica Rudd, Brice Sluder, Brooke Stewart, Shanda Whitlow and Alex Willett also attended.

Friday was Healthy Heart Day. Members enjoyed a healthy potluck at lunch on this day. Saturday, Feb. 17, was Organize Your Home Day. As members observed this national event, each person was encouraged to become a leader by trying to make a difference in their community.
