Houston County High School Houston County High School Recognized for Leading in FCCLA

October 04, 2018

Houston County High School Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) was recently recognized by State School Superintendent Woods at the Georgia Department of Education for being the 2018 FCCLA Families First National Program High School Winner.

Houston County High School received the honor of being announced as the Families First National Program Winner at the 2018 National Leadership Conference in Atlanta, Georgia in July. The Families First project focused on a chapter-led outreach initiative, "Frozen Meals, Warm Hearts", which involved serving Georgia Heart of Hospice by preparing over 80 homemade freezer meals for local hospice families. This project was meant to alleviate the burden of meal planning and preparation for those families going through trying times in caring for loved ones in their final days of life.

The "Frozen Meals, Warm Hearts" project not only supported families in need within the local community, it also educated students regarding the role and purpose of hospice facilities. This project truly exemplified the value of service to others and reflected FCCLA's central focus: family.

Wahome Muriuki, Georgia FCCLA State Vice President of Membership, and Mary DeTota, Houston County High School FCCLA Chapter First Vice President, accepted the recognition from Superintendent Woods on behalf of Houston County High School FCCLA.
