WHS clubs won competitions and planned fundraisers this month.
FCCLA adviser Diane Breiner received a big surprise when the group went to nationals in San Diego in July. She received the 2022 Spirit of Advising Award.
The 1989-90 Charger clubs were very active, and today we highlight Future Famers of America and Future Homemakers of America (now called FCCLA).
Student teacher Brooklyn Rhyne is working with Diane Breiner in family and consumer science classes. Rhyne is a Kansas State University student majoring in Family and Consumer Science Education. “In high school I had a very good FCS teacher. I felt inspired to join that field because of that and because I always knew that I wanted to be a teacher,” Rhyne said.
The Wabaunsee FCCLA students are preparing to bring STAR events to competition on Wednesday. STAR stands for Student Taking Action with recognition. There are 14 groups competing in 11 different categories ranging from service projects to career exploration.
Aden Miller and Kaelyn Conrad join the podcast to discuss their recent trips to national FFA and FCCLA gatherings.
On the twentieth anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attack we look back at how some Wabaunsee High School students commemorated the tragedy. A year after the September 11th attack, three FCCLA students decided that they wanted to create something to commemorate the men and women who lost their lives that day. Lesa Hajny, a member of that group, spoke about what the process to create that quilt was like.
This week, in honor of both FCCLA rush week and the 20th anniversary of 9/11, we look back to the 2002-03 FCCLA club. As part of a STAR event, students created an American flag quilt to remember 9/11. The flag, which still hangs in the commons today, features a square from every WHS student.
Future Farmers of America and Future Homemakers of America were both strong at WHS in 1983, and the clubs continue under different names today.
FCCLA students recently participated in district elections and STAR Event competitions.
Two students ran for district offices this year. Freshman Annie Wright was elected as the alternate Vice President of STAR Events and sophomore Kaelyn Conrad is the District D Vice President of Public Relations. Conrad’s new responsibilities include running the district’s Instagram page as well as writing monthly newsletters.
