Four students from the University of Arkansas recently attended the District I FCCLA Leadership meeting.
The four students are Taylor
Swift, Bryanna Russell, Sara Wilson and Kendahl Hahan, all of whom are studying
family and consumer science education at Arkansas. They were accompanied to the
meeting, which took place on Nov. 9 at the Farmington arts Center, by advisor Sheri Deaton.
The four students set up a display at the FCCLA Leadership
meeting on behalf of the Career and Technical Education Department, where they dispersed
information, answered questions and recruited. The leadership conference saw
more than 300 students -- ranging from 7th grade to 12th grade -- and advisors from Northwest Arkansas in attendance.
Survey cards were circulated and collected by the four
students. The information gathered on the cards will be used to advance
recruitment for both the family and consumer science and career and technical
education programs. Both are housed within the College of education and Health
Professions. Great Value Colleges recently ranked the family and consumer
science program, as one of the top 50 degrees in the nation.
According to Deaton, what sets the program apart are its
diversity, licensure pathway and teaching internship opportunities.
