President of FCCLA Cara Nicole Gooch knows that as FCCLA members we are leaders in our schools, communities, and in our state. Gooch has had a very eventful year as Missouri FCCLA’s president. She has spoken in front of thousands of people, advocated for FCCLA in Washington, DC, shadowed Governor Jay Nixon, and she has attended Nationals in Chicago. Gooch said, “FCCLA has given me the opportunity of a lifetime. I have met a lot of great FCCLA members along the way.”
This year at the 2011 State Leadership Conference the theme is “Rolling Out the Red Carpet of Leadership”. President Gooch said that the theme of this year’s conference is letting leaders show off their leadership skills on the red carpet. The members have learned what it means to be a leader from ACCESS FCCLA, National Cluster Meeting, and the State Conference. Cara says that in the 65 years that FCCLA has been in Missouri leaders have been made and students have participated in community service. Cara Gooch is ready to see the members of Missouri’s FCCLA show off their skills on the red carpet.
“I can’t wait to see everyone on the Red Carpet!” – Cara Gooch, FCCLA State President of Missouri.
