2015-2016 National FCCLA Theme








FCCLA has adopted a single-theme for this upcoming school year and the theme will be reflected in all of our conferences and initiatives, including FCCLA Week. The theme for 2015-2016 is Empower and speaks to making the right choices and committing yourself to making a positive impact within your family, your school, FCCLA and your community. The logo / visual image that accompanies this theme shows the reverse "mepower" to illustrate that the power to affect this change lies within all of us.

Ohio STAR Event and member recap

At this years National FCCLA Leadership Conference Ohio FCCLA had a total of 220 students compete in a variety of FCCLA STAR events. Ohio FCCLA was successful with 103 students receiving gold rating on their projects and 101 students receiving a silver ratings. Only 16 students received a bronze rating on their projects this year.


Damien Connelley, an Ohio State Executive Council member ran for a spot on the National Executive Council. Damien received a score of a 21.5 on his written exam over FCCLA knowledge, which was the 3rd highest score of all candidates. He made it through the first round to make the top 20 candidates. During the second round, he gave a speech to all of the voting delegates that discussed breaking the myths that youth is only a time to develop skills to become leaders. He also participated in a networking session where he met with all the voting delegates from each state. Unfortunately, Damien did not make final cut, but he will make an excellent addition to our State Executive Council.


During FCCLA's time in Washington DC, The State Executive Council visited with 4 legislative staff members and meet with Sherrod Brown at a coffee meet and greet. The students spoke to staff members on the important role Career-Technical Education, Family and Consumer Sciences and FCCLA have played in their academic work and career preparation. They also asked for legislators to join the CTE caucus and to send a letter to the CTE caucus that stated that they
supported CTE.

During the SEC Flight Delay they were able to meet (Right to left) Steve Stiver, Bob Gibbs, Joyce Beatty and Jim Jordan.  Joyce Beatty tweeted and posted on Instagram the photo below.
