Ozark Junior High School has many clubs. One club is FCCLA, or the Future Career Community Leaders of America. This club dedicates one week in February to celebrating its purpose and its members. The teachers who run the club are eighth grade teacher Mrs. Low and ninth grade teacher Mrs. Burk.

“We do FCCLA week for member appreciation. Some things we did were FCCLA president Lily Wright making good deed cards for the members and that they had to complete that week. We also made Valentine’s Day cards for the nursing home,” says Mrs. Low.

An eighth grade student, Kendra Beard, is also a member of FCCLA. She states that what makes this week fun is being able to see what it is that others can do to help out the environment.

“The thing that makes FCCLA week important is how it brings more recognition to the club and also people gets more involved,” adds Beard.

During FCCLA week students and members get to come together by working with one another and not just by showing their appreciation, but by demonstrating how this club can make a difference in our world.
