Three North Buncombe educators will be recognized for excellence at this year’s virtual Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) national conference, taking place July 7-9.

NBHS' award-winning FCCLA club was recently recognized by the BCS Board of Education."FCCLA has given students the opportunity to reach inside themselves and shine as individuals, as a group, and as a community of students with a passion and goal to become better human beings," said North Buncombe High family and consumer sciences teacher Ms. Stephanie Griffin. 

Griffin and her school's career development coordinator, Ms. Amy White, were two of 13 honorees selected from across the nation for this year's Adviser Mentor Award, explained an FCCLA press release. Additionally, North Buncombe Middle School’s Ms. Sherry Peek was one of only 58 recipients selected nationally for a 2020 Master Adviser Award.

An extension of Buncombe County Schools' Career and Technical Education offerings, school FCCLA clubs challenge students to grow through career, technical, leadership, and community service opportunities.

NBMS' Sherry Peek stands with FCCLA club members."It has taken some students out of their comfort zone and allowed them to grow as individuals," Griffin added. "It has given students a vision of what their future could be. FCCLA at North Buncombe High School has given students the opportunity to do more and become more than they ever thought possible, and in turn, made me a better teacher."

According to the FCCLA website, “Since 1945, FCCLA members have been making a difference in their families, careers, and communities by addressing important personal, work, and societal issues through Family and Consumer Sciences education.”
