Members of Romulus Youth Leadership Movement from Romulus Middle School excelled at the Family Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) State Leadership Conference in March. Five groups of students participated in competitive star events by presenting their community service projects. Three groups earned gold and qualified to represent Michigan at the National Leadership Conference in San Diego later this summer, while the other two groups respectfully earned silver. “I felt comfortable going in front of the panel of judges, our preparation made it easy to speak to them” said 8th grade leadership student Bianca Waters. The conference is designed to prepare students for the business world by wearing formal attire and communicating effectively. Students are also required to attend enriching workshops on various topics such as managing stress and college preparation.
