FCCLA members enjoy Lincoln, SLC
LINCOLN—On April 2 Osmond FCCLA students Makayla Boyle, Aleia Kumm, Jessica Jensen, and Leslie Jensen departed Osmond to attend FCCLA State Leadership Conference in Lincoln (April 2nd-4th).
The first night of the conference the students attended the Opening General Session in the Pinnacle Bank Arena where they listened to the introduction of attendees and keynote speaker Johan Khalilian.
The next day students attended breakout sessions. The first session was called “Open Book” where we were given leadership advice from Johan Khalilian.
The second session attended was “Red Flags in Relationships” where students listened to Dr. Christie Brungardt.
The third session attended was called “Sold! The Cost of Human Trafficking” presented by Ms. Robin Phipps.
After attending these sessions, the students went on a tour of the Nebraska state capitol, which after surveying the attendees was voted their favorite event
After attending the capitol, students attended one last session called “Proactive or Procrastinating” where most of them discovered they would be considered procrastinators, but don’t worry, they learned how to fix their mindset.
After this session, they had quite a large interlude of nothing to do so they visited a candy shop called “Rocket Fizz” before heading back to the hotel.
At 9:00 the students went to the FCCLA dance where they had a lot of fun, but being the responsible leaders they are they decided to leave the dance early to get to bed at a reasonable time.
On the last day of SLC the students attended a Closing Session and a District Meeting. At the closing session students watched new students become State Officers.
At the district meeting students voted on a theme for next year’s District Leadership Conference which will be hosted by Osmond next year (but will be held Northeast Community College).
Overall the students had a great time and really want to encourage more students to attend next year and our goal is to participate in more events.
