Two freshmen from Highlands High School competed and took top honors at the National Fall Conference hosted by the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA).

More than 2,500 students from across the country competed at the annual career and technical education competition held this year in Dallas, Texas.

Megan Dadosky and Addy Wagner scored in the top three in each of their competitions. Dadosky won first place in the area of teaching, and Wagner took third place in FCCLA knowledge.

“We both competed in a challenge test,” explained Wagner. “We took a quiz and answered questions about our topics. Each of our challenge tests relate to a career pathway.”

FCCLA focuses on four specific pathways – human services, hospitality and tourism, education and training, and visual arts and design, although the skills learned and practiced through the organization's programs support youth leadership in all areas.

As both students are freshmen, both Dadosky and Wagner said they were not sure yet what they want to do in the future.

“I do know that I want to work with people,” said Dadosky. She said some of her questions focused on how people learn and work differently. She was asked at the competition to explain how knowing this would help her in her future career choices.

Wagner said the test she took focused on leadership skills. “The test I took and just being in the FCCLA will help me become a great leader in whatever career I take on,” she added.

The school board congratulated the students at its December meeting and presented them with certificates and Highlands t-shirts.

FCCLA is a national career and technical student organization that promotes personal growth, leadership and career preparation for students interested in a wide range of family and consumer sciences education.

The organization's National Leadership Conference for this school year will be held July 5 through 9 in Washington, D.C.
