Hailee Lingo, a Nashville High School senior, has served as the Arkansas State FCCLA President for the past year.
While holding this office, she directed the state’s FCCLA chapters. She also traveled to attend different conferences.
Her favorite part would definitely have to be the traveling. She traveled to numerous places to meet different members and officers. “It is an amazing feeling being surrounded for a whole week with people who stand for the same thing you do.”
She ssid that she is going to miss her officer team the most. “I have become family with my five officers. They have been my support system, my shoulders to cry on, my best friends, my worst enemies, and my motivation.”
Her last day as president of the Arkansas State FCCLA will be May 1, 2014.
“I couldn’t have asked for a better year. God truly blessed me with the experience of a lifetime.”
