Hubert Middle School Students Attend FCCLA DISCOVER Training in Fort Valley, GA

Published on: 9/30/2019

Student officers from Hubert Middle School’s new Family, Career and Community Leaders of America Chapter attended a training conference on Developing Individual School Chapters with Vision, Energy and Responsibilities (DISCOVER).  The DISCOVER Training was hosted by the Georgia Association of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) on Saturday, September 14, 2019 at Camp John Hope in Fort Valley, Georgia.  

Over 500 members from over 80 chapters from across the state attended this day of unique opportunities that informed and motivated chapter officers and their advisers to explore opportunities available through FCCLA.  They examined new ways to help them succeed in their families, careers, and communities.  The weekend meeting was intended to increase students’ knowledge of what it means to lead their local chapter and ways to take this back to their own community.

Attendees participated in various sessions that included ideas to take back to their local chapter regarding membership, community service, middle school, national programs and competitive events.  

“After attending the training, I gained a better understanding about all the excitement and opportunities my adviser Ms. Johnson shared with us,” said Ameera Washington, who is a 7th grade Hubert student and new FCCLA chapter President.
