Deanna Giovingo, a family and consumer sciences teacher at Badger High School, was recognized as a Family, Career and Community Leaders of America Master Adviser at the organization’s recent National Leadership Conference.

Giovingo was among 42 fellow 2019 Master Adviser recipients awarded nationwide at the conference that had more than 8,700 attendees in Anaheim, California.

FCCLA’s Master Adviser national award recognizes advisers who have successfully advised an affiliated chapter for a minimum of three years, continuously promote FCCLA and FCS education, operate an integrated chapter with a balanced program of work, facilitate youth-centered activities, and continue to integrate new ideas and FCCLA happenings.

Thanks to the guidance and support of FCCLA Master Advisers, members are able to excel in competitive events, serve in leadership roles, gain real-world skills through FCS education, and positively impact families, careers, and communities. FCCLA Master Advisers are essential in motivating and mentoring members to reach their highest potential.

“Master Advisers deserve to be recognized for their accomplishments and continuing efforts to FCCLA and FCS education,” FCCLA Executive Director Sandy Spavone said. “To honor these advisers only shows a small piece of how appreciative the Board of Directors, National Staff, FCCLA members, and supporters are to have these advisers lead FCCLA chapters.”

The Spirit of Advising Award is an honor bestowed to only one adviser from each state. The Spirit of Advising Award recognizes FCCLA advisers who demonstrate excellence in modeling FCCLA character to help students achieve success within their classroom and career.

“FCCLA advisers are crucial to the organization’s success,” Spavonesaid. “Without their dedication and support to Family and Consumer Sciences, youth leadership, and the organization, FCCLA could not be the ultimate leadership experience it is today.”

Family, Career and Community Leaders of America is a 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.

Projects Badger FCCLA students will work on this year will include Apple Crunch, Teen Driver Safety Awareness and Fuel Up to Play 60TM activities in October, Holiday Cookie Class in December, Kids’ Expo in January, competitions in the winter and spring. In addition, they provide nutritious snacks during exams. All students in family consumer science classes are eligible to participate in FCCLA.
