Senior Kristy Paquette, the national FCCLA vice president of public relations, delivered a patriotic speech, said a news release from the high school.
“The 2012 Texas State Leadership Conference was extremely rewarding for me,” Paquette said. “Our officer team spent all year trying to make it the best possible meeting for all those involved. It was a bittersweet meeting because I had to relinquish my position as a Texas state officer to a new team, but I am confident in their ability to carry on our passion for our organization.”
Paquette was selected by the Texas Career and Technology Council for the Outstanding Family and Consumer Sciences Award and scholarship.
Lindale FCCLA member Brenna Lee was also selected as a scholarship recipient by Family and Consumer Sciences Teachers Association of Texas.
Lindale ISD Communications Specialist Maya Bethany was presented with a plaque recognizing her as an Honorary Member of FCCLA at the state conference.
“I am very grateful to Kristy and Mrs. Allen for nominating me for honorary membership,” Bethany said. “I was so proud of to see our students in leadership roles at the state and national level. FCCLA offers wonderful opportunities for students.”
The mission of FCCLA is to promote personal grown and leadership development through Family and Consumer Sciences education.
