Five Pettisville Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America officers attended the FCCLA State Leadership Conference in Columbus, Thursday, April 18, with their advisor, Luann Bacon, and parent chaperone, Angie Nofziger.
Jacob Nofziger, Taylor Herschberger, Alyssa Ramos, Nathan Siller, and Seth Hernandez attended workshops that talked about various subjects like carbon footprints and texting and driving.
At the evening awards ceremony, the Pettisville chapter was awarded the Ohio Outstanding Chapter Award with a gold rating.
Thirty-one Ohio FCCLA chapters received the recognition.
To be recognized as an outstanding chapter, members must complete projects, some of which include community service, the Ronald McDonald House, cancer awareness, and traffic safety, and must be active at the local, district, regional, and state levels.
Herschberger and Siller are also district FCCLA officers.
The Pettisville FCCLA also received a leadership grant and recognition as an endowment fund contributor.
