Caroline Skaggs and Hope Wear attended FCCLA’s Capitol Leadership in Washington, D.C. FCCLA Members from across the nation joined together to advocate for Career and Technology Education (CTE). Caroline and Hope were able to tell the legislative staff about their story within FCCLA and also meet many FCCLA members from across the United States. 


Caroline Skaggs, the 2019-2020 Oklahoma FCCLA State Executive Council President, welcomed attendees, helped hand out awards and introduced Governor Kevin Stitt Thursday afternoon, August 1 at the 2019 Oklahoma Association of Career and Technical Education's Summer Summit in OKC.


Five Latta FCCLA Members, three sponsors and their Adviser ventured to Anaheim, California from 6/27-7/5 to attend the National Family Career and Community Leaders of America Leadership Conference. 8,700 were in attendance, making this the largest NLC yet. Students who attended were Caroline Skaggs, Hope Wear, Cassidy Miller, Mackenzie Pollard and Kyndal Schlup from the chapter. Caroline Skaggs started her presidency as the 2019-2020 Oklahoma State Executive Council President where she presided at State Meetings, carried in our Oklahoma flag at the opening session, attended State Officer Trainings and handed out competitive event awards. Hope Wear was a National Executive Council Candidate. She was one of two students running from Oklahoma. Hope took a national FCCLA test, networked with students, gave a speech in front of the conference audience, etc. Hope was placed in the top 20 as a Candidate but will serve Oklahoma on the 2019-2020 State Executive Council this year. Aside from her National Candidate tasks, she also served at the State Meetings and attended State Officer Trainings. Cassidy Miller served as a voting delegate for Oklahoma. She spent many hours during the conference in networking and listening to speeches from the candidates. Kyndal Schlup competed with her STAR Event called Career Investigation where she received a gold medal. Mackenzie Pollard also attended the conference as a District Officer for the 2019-2020 school year. The group was also able to strengthen their bond as a chapter by spending time celebrating their achievements at Disneyland, going on an LA Tour, the Santa Monica Pier and of course some shopping! To top off the conference, Oklahoma received the “Ultimate Image Award”. As State President, Caroline accepted the award on stage for Oklahoma. On behalf of Latta FCCLA, we cannot thank everyone who helped these students have the ability to attend this conference enough. We are so grateful for such a great community!--
