Cherokee FCCLA Members Attend Take AIM Conference

Seven members of the Cherokee Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) Chapter recently attended the Oklahoma FCCLA Take AIM Conference held on October 6 at Moore-Norman Technology Center. AIM stands for active and involved members and the conference is a one-day event jam-packed with leadership, laughter, and learning about the organization. The conference is designed for new members, grades 7-10, to learn what the Ultimate Leadership Experience is all about. Facilitated by keynote speaker, Bill Cordes, the members experienced team building exercises, leadership lessons, and more. 

Attending from Cherokee FCCLA were Veronica Castro, Naomi Heim, Zowie Stout, Lindzee Wessels, Talyn Allison, Anna Roglin, and Jaylee Kaminskas. “Six of our seven attendees are brand new FCCLA members this year,” Heather Gottsch, FCCLA Adviser said. “This high-energy and upbeat conference is designed to help new members find their place in FCCLA and leave them ready to aim for new heights in their FCCLA journey. We are looking forward to their contributions to our chapter, school, and community.” 

FCCLA offers a variety of experiences and opportunities for its members. Many students find their niche in competitive events, while others find their passion in one of the many service projects Cherokee FCCLA completes. FCCLA is one of seven Career and Technology Student Organizations in Oklahoma and is the only organization with family as its central focus.
