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.

The Darius Goes West Foundation will ask supporters to take a giant leap Tuesday when it kicks off its annual series of fundraising events in Atlanta with the new television show “Dare Me For Charity”.
In June, Keith Arrowood with Junk South presented a $750 check to Extra Special People Executive Director Laura Whitaker. The money was raised through Junk South’s new donation matching program, in which the company partners with a different nonprofit each month and raises funds by offering clients a chance to make a donation to the charity when Junk South picks up items for removal. The public also can make donations to the program. For more information about Junk South and the program, visit www.junksouth.com.
