Holiday pie baking action was in full swing at Wessington Springs High School (WSHS) with more than 200 pies sold through the annual Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) pie sale. The yearly pie sale is the group's biggest fundraiser and helps fund student FCCLA projects throughout the year.
The service-oriented effort kicks off a series of projects that FCCLA students will undertake over the next month, focused on giving back during the holidays.
“I always require my classes to do a service project,” stated Charlotte Mohling, Family & Consumer Sciences/Technology Skills/Curriculum Director, and who has led FCCLA students for decades. “While we take on service projects throughout the year, we are concentrating our efforts throughout this holiday season.”
Pie baking kicks off the ramped up service-effort, with set-up and coordination of a community Angel Tree to follow.
“The event management class gets recommendations from elementary school teachers on families who might need a little help this Christmas,” said Emma Lammey, WSHS senior and local FCCLA Chapter President, of the Angel Tree located at American Bank & Trust in Wessington Springs. “It’s one of the ways we can all give back to the community.”
