FCCLA New State Officer Training
By Kaitlyn Ferris, Utah FCCLA State 1st Vice President
In April, the Utah FCCLA 2014-2015 state officer team had our first official meeting and training. It was full of fun, hard work, and learning. The first day we participated in a lot of activities to get to know each other. We listened to some wonderful speakers and met our new advisor, Christine Heslop, who helped us get an idea of what our responsibilities would be. After dinner we sat down and got to work planning the theme, motto, and goals for the upcoming school year. We decided on the theme “Color Your World with FCCLA” and selected the motto “Think Outside the Box”.
On the second day of training, we listened to several guest speakers who taught us how to act, look professional, and how to get sponsors from businesses. During lunch we met the parents of each state officer and presented our theme, motto, and goals for the 2014-2015 school year.
I left the conference with so much confidence in my state officer team. I know it’s all going to be a blast and we are going to work very hard and well with each other. I also learned how important it is to be a good example at all times because you never know who is watching. I know the year will be full of rewarding hard work. I am excited to meet FCCLA members throughout the state and see Utah FCCLA exceed expectations. I am looking forward to how outstanding this year will be and am very grateful for the opportunity to serve as the Utah FCCLA State 1st Vice President. This year is going to be a spectacular one.
