Family, Career and Community Leaders of America
One of the Many Opportunities at LHS

There are many different clubs and organizations at LHS, one of them being FCCLA. Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) is a not-for-profit national profession and specialized understudy organization for young men and women in Family and Consumer Sciences training out in open and non-public school through grade 12. Suhr is one of the teachers at LHS that helps with FCCLA.

FCCLA is the main national vocation and specialized understudy association with the family as its focal core interest. Since 1945, FCCLA individuals have been having any kind of effect in their families, vocations, and networks by tending to a significant individual, work, and cultural issues through Family and Consumer Sciences instruction. Mrs. Brinkley is a teacher at LHS and also helps run the FCCLA organization here.

“Members develop skills for life through character development, creative and critical thinking, interpersonal communication, practical knowledge, and career preparation,” said Brinkley.

Throughout the program, there are lots of different things that they do. One of them being interventions. Interventions are a great way to learn more about the organization and meet other people interested in the same things.

“The club goes to intervention and students learn more about FCCLA and meet lots of new people,” said Brinkley.

Not only does the club have many things to do, here at LHS there are meetings about the club and when all of the fun activities are. Brinkley really likes being a part and an educator for this club.

“This club is about developing teamwork, creativity, leadership, responsibility, and time management skills,” said Brinkley.
