Trevor Sconyers, FCCLA State Secretary leaving critical information for our Senators and State Representatives advocating for the government to double the investment in CTE.

Oct 4-- The U.S. Capitol was filled with youth from around the country as Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) and Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) professionals united in Washington, D.C. for FCCLA’s Capitol Leadership to advocate for additional funding for Career and Technical Education (CTE) September 30—October 2.
Trevor Sconyers, Toombs County High School senior and Georgia FCCLA State Officer, was the only student from Georgia who attended FCCLA’s Capitol Leadership where he used his voice and passion to join together with youth leaders from across the nation in meetings with congressional leaders promoting the need to double the funding for CTE. Trevor had the opportunity to personally meet with the staffers of Senators Johnny Isakson and David Perdue along with a staffer from the office of Representative Rick Allen to seek support for making Family and Consumer Sciences education available for every student in every state within every school. In addition to Trevor's scheduled meetings, he also had the opportunity to leave materials with our other 13 representatives from Georgia.
“It was an amazing experience to be able to advocate for the organization I am passionate about, FCCLA. FCCLA has helped me grow in so many different ways, and I am proud to be apart of a movement that can help continue our program for as long as possible!” said Trevor Sconyers, Georgia FCCLA State Secretary from Toombs County High School
Capitol Leadership was the first national FCCLA gathering held this school year. FCCLA members and other FCS leaders will continue to strengthen leadership skills, learn important real world skills, and explore Career Pathways through FCCLA’s upcoming conferences and events including: National Fall Conference in Dallas, TX, Industry Immersion in Chicago, IL, and the 2020 National Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C.
