Eight members of the Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America from F.E. DuBose Career Center attended the state leadership conference in North Charleston March 9-10, and half of them came home with state honors.
Faith Lawson, Tania Lawson, and Latia Davis became state champions in Entrepreneurship through developing and presenting a plan for a small business. They designed a restaurant, and competed against students from 25 different state chapters. All three students are juniors at Scott’s Branch High School.
Jordon Shaw, a junior at Manning High School, was elected as the state Vice-President for Community Service. During the conference, Shaw had to run for the office by passing a placement exam, participate in an interview process, give a campaign speech, and compete for voting delegates.
All four students will attend the National Conference in Atlanta this June, where they will compete for national office and titles.
