Madisyn Ayres is a “get involved” kind of student at Minden High School. That’s how Minden teacher and Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) faculty advisor, Pam Johnson describes the Minden sophomore who will be heading to the FCCLA 2013 National Leadership Conference this summer.
“I decided that I would try everything when I got to the high school and I really enjoyed FCCLA,” Ayres said. “I have been involved with 4-H and there is a strong similarity between FCCLA and 4-H.”
Ayres is the Minden FCCLA Club’s District Officer and serves as District Historian. The Minden FCCLA Club is part of the national Family, Career and Community Leaders of America program that helps young people become leaders and address important personal, family, work and societal issues through Family and Consumer Sciences education.
Ayres was one of several Minden FCCLA students who competed in STAR Events during the April state competition. STAR Events (Students Taking Action with Recognition) are events in which students compete and are recognized for projects, leadership skills and career preparation.
