FCCLA wraps up

Lauren Martin, Managing Editor

As the 2021-22 school year comes to a close, Lewiston High School FCCLA members are wrapping up yet another successful season of competitions. Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America is a national organization founded to teach community building, leadership, communication and critical thinking. In order to compete, students were required to create their own unique presentations centered around a variety of topics, including Career Investigation (Emily Grabow), Focus on Children (Rachel Sheppard), and Event Management (Sophia Gill). This year, students who participated attended district competitions here in Lewiston on Feb. 23, accompanied by Idaho’s FCCLA secretary and representative for District 2, Melinda Pals. Those competitors who qualified at the district level then moved on to state competitions which were held in Boise from April 6-9. Qualifiers Gretchen Pals (12) and Emma Pfaff (12) will attend national championships in San Diego from June 27-July 3.
