PBHS officers attend FCCLA training event in Hutchinson

Peabody-Burns Jr-Sr High School chapter officers of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) recently participated in a training meeting for district officers at the Cosmosphere in Hutchinson.

Officers were led through a problem-solving activity with Cosmosphere employees, then attended break-out sessions on fund-raising, membership and community service.

Cathy Silvers, PBHS advisor as well as district advisor this year, accompanied Debra Coe, president, Samantha Pickens, vice president and Erica Fredericl, secretary and student council representative, to the meeting.

Coe said the Cosmosphere activity was difficult for some and easy for others. The 100 officers participating received envelopes with their task inside, which was to put a puzzle together to make a picture of the universe.

?It was hard for some of us because our task was to not talk or use any body language,? Frederick said.
