Chapter Spotlight: Puxico FCCLA
This post submitted by Amy DeVaughn, Region 8 State Vice President.
Hello Missouri FCCLA! I am your Region 8 State Vice President, Amy DeVaughn. I am very pleased to present the Puxico High School Chapter of Family Career and Community Leaders of America for my chapter spotlight. I would like to tell you a little about two of their very successful projects this year.
As many of us are aware, the flu has been a major concern to school districts, parents, and children. In order to ease the severity Puxico FCCLA thought it would be a good idea to do a project to help “Whack” the flu. They worked with the school nurse to receive materials to use. They put on skits and provided handouts to the children. They also taught proper hand washing technique and how to cover coughs and sneezes to prevent the spread of germs. Students made posters, skits, and even designed “germ” costumes. After the presentations, the FCCLA members hosted a flu shot clinic open to the community and to the students. Members helped at the clinic by calming younger students getting a shot and helping smaller kids color hand washing coloring pages while they waited the observation period.
Another project put on by Puxico FCCLA was an outreach project to a local assisted living facility. Students in the Apparel and Textile class made scarves for the residents for the holiday season. The Puxico FCCLA Chapter provided the money for yarn, delivered scarves to the residents, and assisted in a holiday party for them.
I am very impressed by this chapter and all of their hard work and dedication to FCCLA, and making a difference in their communities. Hope to see everyone at the State Leadership Conference March 21st- 23rd!
