After six months of hard work senior Megan Jenkins became a Family, Career, Community Leaders of America State Peer Officer.
To become a member of the State Peer Officer Team for FCCLA, she had to send in an application that said why she would make a good leader and her past experiences with leadership. In the application she chose one of the three SPOT teams she would be applying for community leader, career leader, or (what she chose) family leader. After receiving a letter saying she was one of 12 finalists, she had to prepare a presentation and an interview with several judges. She said she “thought she was going to freak out” before the presentation and interview, but ended up being fine.

“I have all the scrapbooks,” she said.
