Camp BPW offers the young teens great advice on a variety of topics that can help them now and in the future. Knowledgeable speakers talk about such subjects as careers, nutrition, health, college scholarships and financing a college education, affordable clothing styles, makeup and responsible use of communications technology.
This was the third year for Camp BPW, and topics vary slightly from year to year.
Diana Shelton, local BPW leader, worked with Raelyne Massey, FCCLA advisor at WRHS, to coordinate the joint venture. All seventh-grade girls were invited to participate in the event, held from 3:30 to 6 p.m. at the Family and Consumer Sciences building at WRHS.
Girls participating included: Shelby Fields, Peyton Roberts, Allie Phillips, Brooke Midgett, Caroline Kelley, Tiye Flowers, Ashlyn Wayland, Danielle Mullen, Anna Bland and Mary Beth Sherrill.
To begin Camp BPW, Massey divided the girls into groups, and they prepared grilled chicken and fettuccine Alfredo for an after-school snack.
Speakers and events included the following.
Each of the campers received a T-shirt and goody bag filled with items given by local businesses.
