This week’s Chapter Spotlight is West Plains High School, in Region 9. Starting off this school year the chapter did a “Membership Round Up” to increase membership for the chapter. At the end of the first week there was a BBQ for all the members that had joined during their lunch period. So far, West Plains Senior FCCLA has increased their membership by more than twenty percent!
The chapter recently traveled to Mountain Grove for Regional Officer Training and Regional Meeting. After Officer Training the chapter visited the local recycling center to find out ways to help our school and community to go green. They also bought chapter t-shirts made out of recycled fibers.

Recently West Plains FCCLA has been busy selling and planning future fund raisers. Their first fundraiser was selling cookie dough. They also created a homecoming float for the Zizzer Homecoming Parade. The theme of the float was “Zizzerify those Lakers, Cookin Up A Deadly Strike.” Later this month the chapter is hosting a scavenger hunt that is open to FCCLA members and people from the community.
Best of luck West Plains High School!
