Members of Crockett FCCLA working to raise funds for various causes

Despite the snow and cold weather, the David Crockett High School Family, Career and Community Leaders of America has been hard at work helping others this winter season.
Crockett students, Olivia Taylor, Destiny Crews, and Jessica Slagle have taken on the project of making a queen-sized quilt to be auctioned by local radio station WTFM. The proceeds from the auction will be donated to fund breast cancer research.
When the quilt is completed, a photo of it will be posted on the WTFM web site where interested individuals can then start the bidding. The quilt will also be on display at Wal-mart stores within the radio station’s listening area.
Meanwhile, Crockett FCCLA students Veronica Thompson and Rebecca Shanks worked in the concession stand during the school day for a wrestling match this season. There, 15 gallons of sweet tea were donated and the David Crockett High School Culinary classes made cookies to be sold. The money raised from concession stand sales allowed students from David Crockett to go on a shopping trip.
Students Miranda Case and Angel Fenner recently worked with the school’s culinary classes to make star-shaped cookies to sell for the Children’s Miracle Network.
Each cookie sold for one dollar and a star was signed with the buyer’s name to place on a snow mural in front of the school. These students are now involved with helping other FCCLA members sell Valentines for the Children’s Miracle Network. Their goal is to raise $500.
The students will present these projects at the 2010 District 9 STAR Events Competition at East Tennessee State University on Friday, Feb. 26. Winners of the competition will compete at the FCCLA state meeting on April 6 at Opryland Hotel in Nashville.
