Sunday, November 4, 2012
Russell Middle School seventh-grade students Kimberly Hernandez, Angel Sanchez-Weiss and Yessica Saucedo and their advisor Traci Bryant attended the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America’s (FCCLA) 2012 National Leadership Conference July 8-12 in Orlando, Fla. The theme this year was “#realitycheck.” Throughout the five-day convention, participants examined and discussed critical issues, including family, school and community violence prevention, physical and financial fitness, future career exploration and countless community service projects.
Hernandez and Saucedo competed in Chapter Service Project Display where they spoke about a successful food drive conducted by RMS FCCLA and FBLA and received a gold medal at the conclusion of the conference. Sanchez-Weiss competed in Teach and Train where he presented research about what it meant to be a Family and Consumer Sciences teacher. He received a silver medal at the conclusion of the conference. Sanchez-Weiss also was recognized for his membership recruitment efforts during the 2011-2012 school year.
