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: Teah Berti, Class of 2003
FCCLA Chapter: South Shelby High School - Shelbina, Missouri
FCCLA Participation: STAR Events Participant, Chapter Vice President, Region 3 Officer, 2002-2003 State Vice President
After graduating from South Shelby, Teah attended the University of Central Missouri where she graduated in 2007 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Broadcast Media and Marketing.
For the last four years Teah has worked for the radio station 90.9 The Bridge, which broadcasts in the Warrensburg area. She has her own evening and weekend show. She is also the co-host of "Uncorked", an educational/promotional radio show about wine.
While an undergraduate, Teah had a fun internship with Two West, a marketing and branding firm in Kansas City. She also interned with the T-Bones, the Kansas City minor league baseball team. Teah has also studied abroad twice, and is currently working in the International Center at UCM.
In December of 2009, Teah will graduate once again from the University of Central Missouri with a Master's degree in Mass Communication (emphasis in Intercultural Communication). She is looking for a job that will allow her to travel and see the world...wherever that may take her!
Teah's advice to FCCLA Members: "Never pass up the opportunity to travel and learn more about the world; in turn you will learn more about yourself. Dream big and never give up."
