Alamogordo Proud Alamogordo High School FCCLA Award Recipients


Alamogordo High School FCCLA Team at State Conferencia bring home medals and has been highlighting those positive influencers and community organizations and activities that represent the best of Alamogordo via our campaign “Alamogordo Proud.” The Alamogordo High School (FCCLA) Family, Career and Community Leaders of America students certainly represent that theme. They shined this past weekend during the New Mexico State conference with a few members qualifying to Nationals and winning scholarships

Family, Career and Community Leaders of America is a dynamic and effective national student organization that helps young men and women become leaders and address important personal, family, work and societal issues through family and consumer sciences education. Chapter projects focus on a variety of youth concerns, including teen pregnancy, parenting, family relationships, substance abuse, peer pressure, environment, nutrition and fitness, teen violence and career exploration. Involvement in FCCLA offers members the opportunity to expand their leadership potential and develop skills for life—planning, goal setting, problem solving, decision making and interpersonal communication—necessary in the home and workplace.

Alamogordo High School teacher and club sponsor Prince Walter,  posted the following message in pride of his team and the community support…
