Last Wednesday, at the district Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) competition at Pittsburg State University, junior Logan Jones presented his project, “Say Yes to FCS,” covering the benefits of family and consumer sciences, to a panel of judges.

Jones earned a silver ranking for his presentation, which qualified him for FCCLA’s state competition.

“I’m basically just explaining what FCS education is and why it’s important,” Jones said. “I do a little lesson plan where I observe two teachers, then actually executing that lesson plan.”

Jones said crafting the lesson plan for the competition came with a lot of hard work, in and out of his classes.

“I was spending every day after school and mostly during study hall,” Jones said. “I observed other classes during my fourth hour many times. I took a lot of time to write my lesson plan and everything.”

The FCCLA advisor, Krystal Henderson, says she’s proud of what Logan has accomplished.

“I think Logan is very self motivated and hardworking,” Henderson said. “I was especially impressed because usually students have needed more help and guidance but he did a good job of just taking the reigns and doing most of it own his own.”

Jones said this award brings a special feeling.

“I feel excited because I’m the only one at Pittsburg who was doing it and [competing] in a STAR event,” Jones said. “I’m also the only one in my family to go to state for this event.”

Henderson says that she wants students to learn from Logan.

“It’s not easy and it can be a lot of work to qualify for this type of stuff,” Henderson said. “But he proves that it is worth it and it can be very fun even though it’s hard work.”
