FCCLA members receive grant

Laura Kuebel, Sarah Lehman and Lauren Deddens, East Central Family, Career and Community Leaders of America members, were recognized through the 2013 ABC Summer of Service Award for their “Cyber bullying: That’s Not Cool” program and received a $2,000 grant.

Each year, ABC, in partnership with Youth Service America, recognizes young community change-makers and helps them on their mission to help others. They look for young people located in and around ABC-affiliate communities who are creating lasting, positive change through volunteer and community service projects.

The trio’s program provides a positive approach to teaching youth and adults about the challenges of cyber bullying. Some of their major projects include teaching Sunman-Dearborn Intermediate School sixth-graders about how to be responsible on the Internet and teaching their peers about the importance of using social media responsibly. Kuebel, Lehman and Deddens have created public service announcements for local radio stations to raise further awareness in the community. They also have shared their project at the Cincinnati Museum Center.

The grant will enable the program to be taken to the next level. The FCCLA members plan to create a girls’ day to teach sixth-grade girls about building positive friendships, family relationships, leadership, teamwork and etiquette to enhance their self-esteem to prevent bullying and cyber bullying in their future. This will be a program planned and led by youth for youth.

The EC FCCLA members will also share their ongoing project with over 350 FCCLA members from across the United States at the National FCCLA Cluster Meeting in North Carolina at the end of the month, when they will be leading a session sharing their knowledge about cyber bullying prevention.

“This recognition from ABC is so important to this project and the East Central FCCLA Chapter. This will allow these three members to fully implement their project that they have been advocating for the past three years,” said chapter adviser Brenda Osman. “Lauren, Sarah and Laura are seniors in high school, and this will complete the final step of their FCCLA project and make a difference in the youth in our community.”
