The FACS Knowledge Bowl team of Ericka Burchfield, Laura Kuebel, Samantha Sizemore, Elizabeth Hamersly and Anya Polito placed first and will move on to the final round of competition at the National FCCLA Conference in San Antonio in July.
EC FCCLA officers, Lauren Deddens, Sarah Lehman and Laura Kuebel, also had the opportunity to present their youth session, “Cyber Bullying: That’s Not Cool,” to over 300 FCCLA members from across the country. Their session taught members techniques to bring awareness to the challenges of cyber bullying in today’s society.
Hamersly said, “This was one of the best conferences I have ever attended. I enjoyed spending time at the Biltmore Mansion, as well as the motivational speakers.”
Lehman remarked, “This conference was exciting and has inspired me to go back and do even more community service work with our chapter.”
