Three members of the local chapter for the Family Career and Community Leaders of America, or FCCLA spoke during the Kings River Unified School Board meeting on the evening of Jan. 8.

The girls, Liliana Bedoya, Ashley Lopez, and Dayana Michel talked to board members about recent activities and contributions they have made in recent months. 

According to their website, the FCCLA is the career technical student organization for students previously or currently enrolled in Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) education programs. 

The intra curricular organization offers members the opportunity to expand their leadership potential and develop skills for life planning goal setting, problem solving, decision making and interpersonal communication necessary in the home and in the workplace.

The local group of students told members they have collected canned food items for the Marjaree Mason Center and are currently raising funds for Relay For Life.
