If you are interested in doing service projects and gaining life skills to help you in the real world, this is the club for you. Miss Shumway is a teacher here at MHS and is also the leader of FCCLA. 

 “FCCLA stands for Family, Community, and Career Leaders of America. It’s a student organization where students can come together and feel like they’re a part of something. We find different events for them to compete in, along with service projects and fun activities,” Shumway said. 

Although FCCLA has many activities and service projects, a big portion of their time goes towards competing in events. 

“The different star events that students can compete in vary, but a few of them are baking and pastry, career section, culinary arts, fashion design, and interior design. There’s even events that help prepare you for job interviews. Many of them fall in line with family and consumer sciences,” Shumway said. 

 FCCLA also offers scholarships for students involved, but the biggest thing the organization has to offer is the relationships and bonds you’ll make. 

“We’re really big on wanting the students to feel like they have a place where they belong. We want students to be able to walk into our classrooms for the FCCLA meetings and feel welcome, comfortable, and confident,” Shumway said.
