Fannin County High School Family Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) collected school supplies during the month of October to send to those who were affected by Hurricane Michael. Many members of the community, along with students at FCHS, collected over 5,000 items to send to Bay County, Florida. Some of the items collected include over 200 backpacks, more than 800 pencils, 167 notebooks, and almost 200 packs of lined paper. We also sent crayons, glue, calculators, markers, index cards, disinfectant wipes, dry erase markers, and more!
Cady Finley, 10th-grade FCCLA Officer and leader of this initiative, stated that, “It’s amazing to see how our students and community are willing to come together and collect items to make a big difference in the lives of those who have lost everything.” Cady and her mother drove a U-haul trailer to Bay County, Florida the first week of November to deliver the school supplies. The FCHS FCCLA chapter would like to thank all of the community members who purchased items for donation.

I am looking forward to the success they will have during the next three years of high school. I am so proud!” -Adviser, Lauren Owenby
