The New Castle Career Center Education Careers students attended the FCCLA State Leadership Conference last week and celebrated their hard work and success on this year’s projects.

Family Community Career Leaders of America (FCCLA) is a career and technical organization for students in family and consumer sciences education, like the future teachers in the local Education Careers program.

The NCCC Education Careers class was awarded a plaque for being a GOLD Honor Chapter. Only 10 FCCLA chapters in the state achieved this honor. 

Students Bailey Guffey, Annie Gillock, Morgan Gustin and Grace McCartney helped organize the Honor Chapter portfolio.

New Castle Career Center Director Chris Lamb was awarded as FCCLA Administrator of the Year, and Education Careers teacher Leesa Meyers received a pin in recognition for serving 10 years as an FCCLA adviser.

Class senior Brady Harrison served as an FCCLA State Officer for the 2017-18 school year.

The FCCLA State Leadership Conference was March 8-10 at the Horizon Center in Muncie.
