Madison County High School FCCLA Members Focus On Autism Awareness

Submitted by Robin Smith
Victoria Todd and Sarah Baltzell, members of Madison County High School’s Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) club, chose to team up with the Always Support our Kids (ASK) program for their state FCCLA project in order to work towards the goal of learning how Autism affects children.
These teens started by meeting with ASK parent meeting to determine the possible ways that FCCLA members could be a part of the ASK monthly meeting. During the meeting, the teens shared ideas they had for activities they would like to do with the children. In January, Victoria and Sarah joined the Madison County Junior Auxiliary to provide winter-fun activities for the children. The children played with homemade snow, made snowflake rubbings and created bead necklaces.
The teens plan to attend the February meeting, where the children will explore different painting techniques. Students from the Madison County High School Art Club will assist them.
Additionally, FCCLA students promoted Autism awareness during National FCCLA week by having members paint and wear Autism Awareness shirts on Feb. 7. The t-shirts were made at an FCCLA meeting after the girls did a presentation for all of the members in attendance.
The students would like to thank ASK for this opportunity, along with the Junior Auxiliary and Art club for all their support.
