The Family, Career and Community Leaders of America, or FCCLA, is dedicated to helping the community in any way possible. Members of FCCLA are involved in community service projects such as collecting can foods for the Food Bank and GRASP, organizing the annual Angel Tree, participating in Relay for Life, organizing walk-a-thons, Christmas caroling around the holidays, and donating their time in any way they can.

The club is comprised of 87 dedicated students determined to make a difference in the lives of others.

“FCCLA’s goals are to support their community along with developing leadership skills for each individual student,” senior Madelyn Miller, former president of the club. “It’s the best feeling watching someone’s face light up. Whether were Christmas caroling at a retirement home, or donating canned foods to the food bank, we love making a difference.”

FCCLA is organized by Mrs. Carrie Hill, Ms. Jennifer Kowalik, and Ms. Casey Quiroz. The most resent project they held was donating to the San Antonio Food Bank. The students collected and gathered canned goods and drove to the food bank to donate to the needy.

“We love serving our community and giving back. Our students find much joy in it,” Hill said.

This club is great for those who enjoy taking part in making a difference. Not only are they promoting community service, but developing leadership skills along the way. Students and teachers only goal is to make a difference in their community.
