Chapter Spotlight - South Shelby
This week's chapter spotlight was submitted by Caroline Kirby, National Vice President of STAR Events.
It's that time of year again for the South Shelby FCCLA Chapter. STAR Events Sign-Up Time!
This past week, members of the South Shelby FCCLA met for the October meeting to start our favorite part of FCCLA. In the Career and Family Leadership classes, I along with our advisor, explained to the new members what STAR Events is, all the categories, and the opportunities a member has by participating. The new members, as well as the old ones, were eager to participate in all 25 national events (and 7 state events), including the three new events for the 2009-2010 school year: Environmental Ambassador, Fashion Design, and Food Innovations.
STAR Events is a great way for members to get involved in the organization, develop skills they will use the rest of their lives, and experience opportunities for a lifetime! So get your chapter members motivated to complete a STAR Event, whether it's Applied Technology or Focus on Children - just get everyone involved in the Ultimate Leadership Experience!
