Region 9 President of FCCLA

Houston High School student achieved recognition when her peers voted her to regional position a second year in Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA).


Charlee Sue Jadwin, a junior at Houston High School, has been elected to the 2018-2019 Region 9 President of the Regional Executive Council of FCCLA. Jadwin is one of 13 regional officers elected. Being elected a regional officer is the one highest leadership honors an FCCLA member can achieve at that level. This is the second year that Charlee Sue has been elected to this prestigious office.


Region 9 FCCLA is comprised 15 school districts in 7 counties in the south central area of Missouri.


To reach this milestone in their FCCLA careers, each candidate had to submit an application form, take a knowledge test, give a prepared speech, and answer a situation question.


The regional officers will help set policies for the region, make and carryout plans for the fall regional meeting, help regional members develop in-depth and meaningful activities, and provide leadership activities for regional members. They will begin their duties at the 2018 State Leadership Conference where they will attend a training session for regional officers and conduct their first meeting to begin plans for the next school year.


The Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) is a dynamic and effective national student organization that helps young men and women become leaders and address important personal, family, work, and social issues through Family Consumer Sciences education.


Currently, Missouri FCCLA has 10,094 members in 321 local chapters, ranking as the fourth largest FCCLA state association in the nation.
