Callaway FCCLA Chapter Attends Distric
Around 300 students and their advisers from area schools converged on the Mid-Plains Community College South Campus for the District 10 FCCLA meeting October 15th. The meeting opened with the FCCLA creed, flag salute and Thedford volunteers singing the National Anthem. Harley Svenson, of Callaway, was among the District 10 officers that organized the conference. District 10 FCCLA chapters included Mullen, Thedford, Brady, Maxwell, Cozad and Callaway. It was a busy day with creed speaking, elevator speeches, FCCLA Quiz Bowl, cookie decoration and poster competitions, as well as, state officer candidate competitions.
Lori Balke, the keynote speaker, presented the “Real Colors” and explained how people see things and react differently due to their temperament. She explained that temperaments couldn’t be used as an excuse for how you act. Students really enjoyed her presentation and were anxious to see which of the 4 colors their personalities fit into. Other sessions were presented by members of the State Officer Team, State Peer Officer Team and a MidPlains Community College representative.
The district project was to have each chapter bring items for backpacks for children before they are placed in foster homes. Items included school supplies and toiletry items. Callaway collected 104 items with the 4th grade collecting the most with 23 items. The 4th grade class will be rewarded with a rootbeer float party.
Maxwell chapter presented a video of the National FCCLA meeting that was held last summer in Texas. Awards were given and the meeting was adjourned.
