Hattiesburg High holds 2013 FCCLA Regional Conference

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Dozens of students across the southern region are preparing to be future leaders of America.
 
Hattiesburg High School held the 2013 Family, Career and Community Leaders of America FFCLA Regional Conference on Thursday.

The event focuses on helping students with personal growth and leadership development.

“It actually helps the students prepare for competition, if they have any questions, and opportunities for advisers to meet with other advisers and network,” said FCCLA adviser, Marlena Jenkins. “This is a wonderful opportunity to teach some students leadership skills.”

Students learned more on financial freedom, social networking and cyber bullying.

“This regional conference has helped me more with my public speaking, just my leadership qualities,” said Stone High School FCCLA student, Casey Lavender. “To be able to confront people and make new friends it's a true blessing.”

A total of 7 high schools attended the event.
