Students with the FCHS Technology Student Association (TSA) attended the Chapter Officer Retreat for Excellence (CORE) event in Rabun County from September 13th through the 16th. The students were given the opportunity to learn about the responsibilities of their offices and attend leadership training. The students also competed in the CORE Olympics and raised money for the American Cancer Society. The students also created their Program of Work which is their plan of action for the 2019-2020 school year. These students are responsible for leading the activities of the local chapter of the Technology Student Association.
