Alleghany High School student Caydance Ramsey spent her “downtime” this summer preparing for a leadership position in Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA).
The mission of this organization is to promote personal growth and leadership development through Family and Consumer Sciences education.
Caydance, a junior at AHS, is the new Virginia state vice president of programs for FCCLA.
In order to earn this title, she completed a thorough application and interview process and then attended a training session in July. Due to the restrictions of the current COVID-19 pandemic, this was done virtually.
In addition to taking on this new role, Caydance continues to be very active at the local level in her FCCLA chapter at AHS.
This summer, she competed at the National Leadership Conference and earned a silver ranking for the second year in a row. This was also done virtually, but required her to create and submit a trifold, pictures, documentation and a video presentation.
While this is a great accomplishment, Caydance is looking forward to competing again and striving for gold. Even though the National Leadership Conference was all online this year, Caydance still participated in the Virtual “Run4Red” 5K.
Last summer, Caydance had the opportunity to travel to the National Leadership Conference with her teammate Ashtyn Bishop and advisor Amanda Grimm. The three flew to Anaheim, Calif., to spend a week at the National FCCLA Conference.
These two students chose to compete in the Chapter in Review Display category which allowed them to recap everything the chapter had done throughout the school year.
To learn more about FCCLA, or partner with the group this year, please contact the school.
