NASHVILLE — Miami Valley Career Technology Center (MVCTC) Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) students joined more than 7,500 FCCLA student leaders, members, and advisers at the Music City Center in Nashville, from July 2-6 to participate in the annual FCCLA National Leadership Conference (NLC).
The conference provided MVCTC students opportunities to listen to inspiring speakers, attend learning sessions, compete on the national level, and network with other leaders.
The theme of this year’s conference was “Unlimited Possibilities,” which inspired attendees to discover the unlimited possibilities within their reach while exploring career opportunities, developing leadership skills, and growing personally while making difference in their families and communities.
Among the award-winning students was Miami East High School senior Alexis Adkins, who is studying Early Childhood Education at MVCTC. Adkins received a gold rating in Chapter Service Display.
“We were thrilled to have an attendance of over 7,500 members, advisers, partners, and guests who were committed to discovering the unlimited possibilities available through FCCLA,” said Sandy Spavone, executive director of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America.
“The relationships and skills developed during this conference have inspired students to make a difference in their own communities and to discover the unlimited possibilities within their reach,”
FCCLA has more than 164,000 members and more than 5,300 chapters from 49 state associations, in addition to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Its programs are planned and run by members, and it is the only career and technical in-school student organization with a central focus on careers that support families.
