Congratulations to Grandview Heights High School students Olivia Gamble and Silas Callison who recently presented class service projects in the “Chapter Service Project Portfolio” Competition at the State Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) Leadership Conference. During the two-day conference, both Gamble and Callison engaged in leadership trainings. Both students participate in the Columbus Downtown High School Early Childhood Education Career Program.
Gamble and Callison focused their presentation on two acts of service that their Columbus Downtown High School FCCLA chapter completed including a Thanksgiving food drive for St. Dominic’s food pantry and a “Words of Hope” project whereby their class created 120 inspirational cards and 100 small books for children in Franklin Country foster care. Gamble and Callison were recognized for going above and beyond classroom expectations with their presentation.
