HOISINGTON — Over 200 hundred students, advisors, and guests attended the District B FCCLA Fall Leadership Conference in Stockton on Oct. 19. Hoisington’s own Kayla Reisner opened the meeting as the District B president. Shannon Manka is currently serving as the District B Vice President of STAR Events.

Twenty six students from Hoisington attended the conference and heard the Peer Ed groups from Kansas FCCLA, Student Body and Families First. Peer Ed is FCCLA members who have been selected to a group and become "experts" on one of the programs and teach it to their peers. Two other sessions included the two state officers from District B. They presented on their program of work.

In the afternoon, the Hoisington FCCLA chapter was recognized as an exemplary chapter in the state for all that they do within the school and community, state and nation.

HHS principal, Meg Wilson was also recognized by the Hoisington chapter for all the support that she gives the Hoisington chapter.

In the afternoon, the guest speaker was the drum group of Sheltered Reality. The students enjoyed the message and numerous members of the Hoisington FCCLA group ended up on stage with the drum group as they were selected to help perform.

The group will have a fundraiser at Montana Mike’s Steakhouse in Great Bend from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on Nov. 14. FCCLA students will serve. The proceeds will go to the group to attend the national cluster meeting, or for the industrial arts to build a new electric car.
