Career Development Events

FCCLA members, it’s that time of year again! Career Development Events are on the rise! I hope that you are using all of the skills you have learned through your FCS classes and your participation in FCCLA to create the best project possible. Whether you are competing in a national event or Ohio only event, you will want to follow this advice. Do not procrastinate, Charles Dickens said “My advice is to never do tomorrow what you can do today. Procrastination is the thief of time.” Carry yourself with confidence, Helen Keller said “Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.” And lastly, do not focus on winning and instead focus on growing. Benjamin Franklin once said, “Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.” With these wise words of advice in mind, good luck at your regional competitions in March!


- Shayla Combs, State Secretary
