What Could FCCLA mean to you?
Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), an impressive club with an even more impressive community. To me it means family and friendships. Last year I was in FCCLA, and I made many new friends and grew closer to the old ones. I love FCCLA; I got a lot of new opportunities and great experiences while in this amazing club.
