NZ FCCLA serves community

Posted

The North Zulch Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) Traffic Safety Team, consisting of Ali Sunny, Fasial Sattar and Megan Watson, have conducted a number of events throughout the community in order to promote safer ways of travel.

“I love to see the students work hard on their projects and present them at different levels,” said North Zulch FCCLA Coordinator Jane Dill. “They grow so much from the experience that many of my former students always thank me for pushing and assisting them to succeed.”

Dating back to September, the Traffic Safety Team has conducted a coloring contest, presented a bus safety slideshow, hung up posters and completed a ‘Zero Crazy’ seatbelt check survey.

In December, they hosted guest speaker Shawn Carter, who survived a life-altering car accident after getting in a vehicle with a drunk driver. Carter primarily uses a wheelchair, although he can walk with some assistance, and uses a computer in order to talk. His mother was also in attendance to help explain his story.

“The speech delivered by (Carter) seemed very powerful,” said Dill.

The team also hosted Prince and Cindy Kovar from the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension program to inform FCCLA members of the many traffic safety organizations in an attempt to make all students and teachers more aware and safer in the community.

A number of other North Zulch FCCLA students are also involved with multiple fundraisers in the community.

Landon Theiss teamed up with Taylor Morgan from Centerville ISD to host the annual FCCLA Fall Leadership event, which encompasses members from different schools to come together and expand their knowledge in a fun, social manner.

FCCLA also helped NZISD alumni organize a dinner commemorating past graduates from the school.

The Promote and Publicize Team, which consists of Luis Garcia and Tyler Kirschner, started a food drive to help those in need. The team donated over 300 canned good items to the Kimbro Center in Madisonville.

A group of FCCLA students also assisted Dill in preparing and serving school board members in their annual School Board Dinner.
