The mission of FCCLA is to promote personal growth and leadership development through family and consumer sciences education, and a power point shown during the dinner highlighted some of the group’s many community service activities.

Following the recitation of the FCCLA creed and the candle lighting ceremony, all members of the club were recognized with special notice being given to third year members Barbara Wells and Brittany Erow.

Erow, a junior, attends MVHS in the morning and the Knox County Career Center early childcare program in the afternoon. FCCLA advisor Martha Melick said Erow “has been an outstanding member who brings ideas and assistance to many of our programs and service projects.”

Wells is a junior in the career-based intervention program at MVHS, and as such attends school half a day and works half a day. “Using skills obtained by attending two leadership conferences,” said Melick, “Barbara has made FCCLA at MVHS more interesting and successful.”
