On October 10, 2018, the Tarkio High School FCCLA Chapter attended the Region 1 Fall meeting on the campus of Northwest Missouri State University. The chapter had 40 members attend. Taylor Stanton represented our FCCLA Chapter as a regional officer helping to organize and lead the meeting. The theme was “Get roped into leadership” and there were many western decorations and skits from the officer team. Tarkio choir members helped open the meeting by singing the Star Spangled Banner. The entertainment for the meeting was a comedy/motivational team from Omaha called Tall, Dark, and Comedy. Jordyn Hogue was also recognized on stage for representing the region at the National Leadership Conference this last summer in Atlanta with her STAR event. This meeting brings together schools from our area, and gets them pumped about the upcoming FCCLA year. This meeting also shows how well our region is doing at the state and national level.
