The organization is celebrating its 70th year. Almost 800 members, advisors, and guests attended from 38 chapters across the west central part of the state. Josilyn Harms, chapter president and Emma Weller, chapter first vice president participated in the meeting development and presentation as Region 12 FCCLA officers. The guest speaker for the event was Joe Fingerhut, who gave an entertaining presentation inspiring youth to take advantage of the opportunities they are exposed to everyday. He spoke from the heart about adversity using humor to connect with the youth audience. The Regional Community Outreach project this year was a Miracle Minute held to benefit CASA in Sedalia. The group raised over $500 in one minute.

Both youth and adults work together to manage the events and serve as evaluators of the participants. Throughout the year, FCCLA members tackle issues such as teen violence prevention, traffic safety, family issues, career exploration, and much more. Tori and Lainy competed in the Sports Nutrition Junior Event. Their project focused on planning a nutritional plan for a student athlete and preparing a presentation and display to present the plan.
