Local FCCLA Chapter goes Back to OUR Future with FCCLA

Lincoln, NE- Over 1,100 students from all areas of Nebraska gathered for the Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America’s (FCCLA) State Leadership Conference held in Lincoln, Nebraska April 3-5. The conference took place in the Pinnacle Bank Arena and Holiday Inn-Downtown. Fillmore Central student Zack Quick was among the students that attended the conference.

Over the 3 day conference, students were able to participate in competitive events such as STAR Events, and attend several sessions and workshops led by many inspiring speakers on relevant youth issues. Topics included leadership development, peer education, entrepreneurship, nutrition and wellness, healthy relationships, and much more.

The students who attended the conference got the chance to listen to the conference keynote speaker Alex Sheen. Alex is the founder of the movement because I said I would, a social movement and non-profit dedicated to betterment of humanity through promises made and kept. He has been featured on The Today Show, ABC World News, and The Los Angeles Times. He once walked over 240 miles across the state of Ohio in 10 days to fulfill a promise. He has impacted millions with his message.

This year, Zack represented Fillmore Central by competing in a STAR event at State Leadership Conference. STAR Events (Students Taking Action with Recognition) recognizes members for proficiency and achievement in chapter and individual projects, leadership skills, and career preparation. Zack placed second in his event, “Teach and Train” and will be competing at the next level when he attends FCCLA’s National Leadership Conference.

This year, the National Leadership Conference will be held in San Diego, California on July 3-7, 2016. FCCLA members around the country will gather in sunny San Diego to attend workshops and youth sessions, as well as to compete in national STAR Events.

Peer Ed Retreat

April 7, 2016

The Fillmore Central FCCLA Chapter attended the FCCLA State Peer Education Retreat held in Kearney, NE on February 29, 2016. Members attending were Zach Quick, Megan Engle, Sydney Lovegrove, and Darren Shroyer. The theme of the meeting was “To infinity and Beyond” with FCCLA! This theme took its inspiration from the movie, Toy Story, which also coincided with the charity that was benefited at the Retreat – “Love Adelyn”. This group was inspired founded by a couple inspired by the death of their daughter Adelyn. Its goal is to help raise awareness for Congenital Heart Defect and to help children with this defect that are in need. One of the goals of this charity is to make and distribute 100 activity packets for children in hospitals. Nebraska FCCLA contributed to that effort by donating packets and supplies for packets at this event.

In addition, there were several speakers and sessions. The keynote speaker was Neil Halford, who presented “Victim or Victor”. Neil was a former wrestler, earning his way to Nebraska State Wrestling even though he had been blinded in an accident at age 2.

The State Peer Officers held sessions to educate members about the value of Peer Teams and how to us FCCLA as a tool for success. Another session highlighted Royal Family Kids Camps and still another, featured a local speaker who shared her path as an entrepreneur in “How to Create an Online Career in Wellness”.
