The four sessions were: “A Little Bit of Everything” with Section 15 Officers Faith Hardwick and Abbie Heath; Interviewing and the Hiring Process from Angie Matlock, Tuscola, Arcola and Sullivan’s McDonald’s owner; Janie Cantu, a former FCCLA member; and Team Building and Leadership by SFC Gary Miller. Thank you so much to all of them for helping make this conference awesome and to our Keynote Speaker, Mr. Danny Powell for taking time to talk about leadership! Also, thank you to Flesor’s Candy Kitchen for catering our taco bar for a delicious lunch! Tuscola FCCLA also had the second chapter meeting Thursday, Sept. 13 where students signed up for the Homecoming game bake sale on Friday, Sept. 28 playing Sullivan!
