Liberty Middle School FCCLA Knights joined more than 7,000 Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) student members, advisers, and guests at the San Diego Convention Center, June 29-July 3 to participate in the annual National Leadership Conference (NLC).   

The conference provided Liberty Middle School’s members opportunities for listening to inspiring speakers, attending youth workshops, competing on the national level, and networking with other youth leaders. The theme of this year’s conference was “Make It Count,” which inspired attendees to share how they make it count while exploring career opportunities, developing leadership skills, and growing personally while making a difference in their families and communities.  

In Competitive Events, Liberty Middle School FCCLA Knights placed in Top 3 in 2 categories, Top 10 in 1 Category, and Top 20 in 2 Categories! 

Liberty Middle School’s VP of Membership and GA FCCLA Region 6 Officer, Zamya Delamar facilitated a highly engaging and informative Youth Workshop entitled “Perfection in Progress” for the FCCLA NLC attendees. The workshop gave attendees invaluable tips on how to prepare for public speaking opportunities and how to track their progress. 

“I am very proud of all my students for their accomplishments, and the strides they have made to becoming great leaders. My heart was overwhelmed witnessing my students being recognized on the national stage. I’m sure the 2022 FCCLA NLC experience will be an inspiration for the students to strive for and accomplish more in their future both academically and within the community, said Felicia Wright Hodges, FCCLA Chapter Adviser for Liberty Middle School. “We would like to give a hearty THANK YOU to all our sponsors and partners for making this trip possible: Newton County Board of Commissioners, Double Good Popcorn Fundraising, Newton County Schools BOE/CTAE Director Dr. Tim Schmitt, Liberty Middle School/Principal Malcolm Brown, Your Pie of Covington, Zaxby’s # 35405, Probate Judge of Newton County Melanie Bell, Dr. Keith Stevens, and a host of family and friends.”
