Sequoyah High School has received a generous gift for its Family, Career and Community Leaders of America program.
Pilgrim’s of Canton has donated $5,000 through its Hometown Strong Program to the career education and service club.
FCCLA students learn about careers, participate in career-related competitions at the Region and State level and engage in service projects for the community. The national organization’s programs most directly support Career Pathways in Human Services, Hospitality and Tourism, Education and Training, and Visual Arts and Design.
Teacher Molly Miller, who serves as advisor of the Sequoyah FCCLA club with co-adviser teacher Rachel LaChine, said the donation will be used to support community service projects and to provide FCCLA conference and event scholarships to students who otherwise couldn’t afford to participate.
“We are so appreciative to receive this donation and have the opportunity to help our county with service projects,” Ms. Miller said.
