On Thursday, February 18, Cortney Harris, Jeffrey Waldorff and Mrs. Marie Granger traveled to the state capitol in Tallahassee for CTE day on the hill.
CTE stands for Career and Technical Education. They, along with many other groups from around Florida, set up their displays, and explained their organization and plans to many observers and state legislators. As the State legislators came around, we were able to explain to them the importance of Family and Consumer Science classes and FCCLA in today’s school curriculum.
One of our National Officers for FCCLA, Jessica Hagood, also from Florida, was on hand to talk to the legislators. We also had students from Ponce De Leon High School come and help support the group. Two of our state officers, Kelsey Livesly and Kendra Bennett, were also there.
We all had a great time as we got to meet many of the State Legislators and learn about many of the other groups from around Florida.
