Members of the Goessel High School chapter of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America participated in a weekend leadership conference Nov. 16-18, in Minneapolis, Minn.

Attendees participated in a weekend of training and sessions that challenged, informed and motivated members and their advisers to become leaders through FCCLA.

Along with more than 2,500 other members and chapter advisers, Goessel?s FCCLA chapter adviser, Ruth Goertzen, accompanied members Kristin Unruh, Amy Brubaker, Rochelle Webb, Sierra Dirksen and Chrystiana Voth to the meeting.

The ?MADE: Making A Difference Everywhere? theme was reinforced in the opening general session by guest speaker Jeff Yalden, who spoke, ?About Life,? and encouraged students to make the most of their leadership potential.

Saturday?s agenda included training in FCCLA?s peer education programs such as Student Body and Financial Fitness.

Keynote speaker Adolph Brown III closed the meeting by addressing how good character and decisions are critical in everyday living.

?The guest speakers were very motivating and inspiring,? said Unruh, Goessel?s chapter president.

?We were challenged to make a difference in our lives and in the lives of those in our school and community.?

Minneapolis is one of four nationally sponsored training conferences this fall.
