This post was submitted by Levi Rash, Missouri Alumni & Associates State President.

FCCLA Alumni impact the organization even after membership in high school. Here’s a look at what one of our very own Missouri FCCLA Alumni has been up to lately!

Name: Jamie Lunsford, Class of 2003
FCCLA Chapter: Gallatin High School- Gallatin, Missouri
FCCLA Participation:
  • 1998 to 2000-National Gold Medal Parliamentary Procedure Team
  • 1999 to 2000-Chapter 2nd Vice President
  • 2000 to 2001-Regional 2nd Vice President
  • 2001 to 2002-State Vice President
  • 2002 to 2003-National Vice President of Membership

Upon graduating from Gallatin High School, Jamie attended the University of Missouri-Columbia where she graduated from in 2007 with dual degrees in Finance and Communication.

While in college Jamie interned and worked for Christine Hollingsworth in the FCCLA office at the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. She also served as a Communications Intern for the Missouri Secretary of State, Robin Carnahan.

Currently, Jamie is working as a Consultant for Cerner Corporation in Kansas City, MO. Cerner is a medical information technology company, for which Jamie assists hospitals with the design and implementation of Cerner’s Surgery and Anesthesia Software. Jamie plans to continue working for Cerner, hopefully transitioning to a more advanced consulting position in the near future.

Today, she serves as President of the College of Business Recent Alumni Advisory Board for the University of Missouri, and as Vice President of Membership for the Kansas City Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Theta. Jamie hopes to continue her involvement with these organizations as well.

Jamie’s Advice to FCCLA Members: “Get involved!! By attending workshops, participating in STAR Events, or serving as an officer you will be able to strengthen your leadership abilities all while having the opportunity to meet people from all across the region, state or even nation! The interpersonal, communication, and leadership skills you develop will continue to benefit you in whatever your future may hold. On countless occasions I have relied on the life skills I developed through my FCCLA involvement in order to accomplish my workplace responsibilities.”
