On October 5, 2017, 35 members of the Tarkio High School FCCLA Chapter attended the Regional Meeting for FCCLA at Northwest Missouri State University. The theme this year is centered around the Olympics with the slogan, “Ignite your Leadership with FCCLA!” This year’s keynote speaker delivered a great message about not letting your past affect your future. Also in the meeting, members watched many Olympic themed skits and fun activities. One of the activities was the dancing toga challenge, organized by Tarkio’s regional officer, Taylor Stanton. This included one member wrapping another member in toilet paper and the person wrapped in toilet paper then had to have a dance off with the other members. One of our chapter’s members, Skye Clark, was one of the teens chosen to go on stage and show off her moves. This chapter had a fantastic time and looks forward to more fun activities with FCCLA!
Attending the event from Tarkio were FCCLA Advisor Dara Wennihan and members Hannah Blank, Madison Ohrt, Gage McAdams, Grace Martin, Camille Gibson, Gabby DeRosier, Bryli Staten, Morgan Parshall, Brynnan Poppa, Autumn Murry, Anna Klute, Skye Clark, Jordyn Bates-Hogue, Jamie Hendrix, Lexi Somerville, Jae Barnett, Novalee Yeary, Kaytlyn Young, Alli Yates, Mercedes Parshall, Ella Rolf, Aubrey Brown, Madison Driskell, Dixie Hendrix, Shaylee Sparks, Taylor Stanton, Selena Somerville, Austin Anderson, Madison Lesher, Anna Lester, Brianna Maxwell, Jordan Heard, Raelynn Gish, and Jayden Viets.
