Fall Message from Emma Sellers, 2021-22 State President:
This past year has been filled with so many challenges, but one thing the pandemic taught us is the importance of making every moment count. We are excited for you to explore the upcoming opportunities to learn new skills, travel to conferences and events, make new friends and create the best version of yourself. Whether it be a local chapter project, State Fair, STAR Events, the State Leadership and Recognition Conference, or National Leadership Conference, there’s something for everyone in FCCLA. I hope to meet all of you at SLRC, April 1-3, in Virginia Beach. FCCLA members, this year is our year to “Make it Count”.
