Students and Staff Participate in Legislative Day at the Capitol!
Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Some young leaders from Chillicothe High School & Grand River Technical School did an OUTSTANDING job of promoting Career and Technical Education during Legislative Day at the Capitol on Wednesday, February 13.

Lauren Haley, FFA, and Kayla Riddle, SkillsUSA, demonstrated and discussed two of their projects in Career and Technical Education (CTE) in the rotunda throughout the morning. They had opportunities to discuss with legislators and administrators, teachers and other students from Missouri technical schools, not only their projects but also how they personally have benefited from CTE and their student organizations.

Shelby Bush, Hannah Thieme, Mrs. Kristie Christy, Chillicothe High School (CHS) Family & Consumer Science instructor, and Rusty Black, CHS Ag instructor, along with Grand River Technical School administrators Ron Wolf and Jayme Caughron, visited legislators Sen. David Pearce and Rep. Mike Lair. It was good to have an opportunity to speak personally with the legislators and thank them for their support of CTE.

Bush, Thieme, Haley and Riddle are perfect examples of how career and technical student organization's help young people develop into fine leaders even at such a young age. They have both been (and continue to be) active leaders not only at the local level but also at the state level of FCCLA and have traveled to national conventions, as well.

Haley did a phenomenal job with her agriculture science project at the national FFA convention, and Riddle presented her anti-bullying project at SkillsUSA district contest on Friday, February 18.
