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.

Athens-Clarke police Chief Joseph Lumpkin and Ed Benson of the Rotary Club recently delivered copies of “A Student’s Dictionary” to pupils at J.J. Harris Elementary School. Chief Lumpkin also spoke with students about the “Hands Are Not for Hitting” program. A Student’s Dictionary program provides a book to every third-grader in the Clarke County School District. Each student is expected to write their name in their books as well as their expected graduation year to reinforce the importance of getting a high school diploma. Hands Are Not for Hitting is a program designed to allow for family discussions to emphasize that it is not acceptable to act violently.
When Mary Shavonne (Shae) Wilson-Gregg started working at the Athens YMCA as a teen, she didn’t know she was embarking on what would become a life-long career.
