NEW ULM — Students from New Ulm Middle and High School attended the Minnesota Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America Leadership camp at Bethel College from June 18-20.

Centered around a theme of “FCCLA Incredibles” attendees worked to improve their leadership abilities through a variety of activities.

Speaker Teresa Rose presented her message to the members during Monday’s Leadership training: Weaving important life messages into personal experiences of her life, while making the FCCLA members present laugh and want to get up and better themselves as a result of her message.

Other activities included STAR event round tables for those attending the National Leadership Conference at the end of June, state and area officer training, and various speakers on leadership and communication. Planning of the state and area conferences was conducted by area and state officers.

A highlight of the camp was the lip sync; in which all the members prepared a lip sync to a song and then performed in front of everyone else. The state officers performed a skit and revealed the state theme for 2018-2019 to be “Land of 10,000 Dreams.”

FCCLA leadership camp was preparing members for the upcoming National Conference and school year, as well as teaching them essential skills to succeed in both FCCLA and their futures. FCCLA is the Ultimate Leadership Experience, and Leadership Camp was an opportunity for members to gain the skills necessary to become a leader of the future.

Minnesota FCCLA is a dynamic and effective student organization that helps young men and women to become leaders and address important personal, family, work, and societal issues through family and consumer sciences education.
