Centennial High School student Brydn Abraham brought home gold from the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) National Leadership Conference held this summer in Atlanta, Ga.
Abraham competed amongst 4,200 students from across the nation. He won the highest medal in the Illustrated Talk-Junior Entry category, which requires students to make an oral presentation about issues concerning family and consumer sciences and/or related occupations.
Abraham qualified for the FCCLA National Leadership Conference by winning first place at the state conference in April, making him Frisco ISD’s first-ever FCCLA national qualifier. Abraham is a member of one of the two FCCLA chapters in Frisco ISD; the other is at Liberty High School.
FCCLA is a nonprofit organization that aims to promote personal growth and leadership development through family and consumer sciences education by developing skills for life through character development, creative and critical thinking, interpersonal communication, practical knowledge and career preparation.
