Adara Donald and Catlin Thompson, officers in Mrs. Denita Jarratt’s FCCLA Chapter at Haywood High School, had the honor of speaking to the Brownsville Rotary Club on Tuesday. Pictured with the officers are (left) Brownsville Police Chief Chris Lea and (right) Dr. Thomas Russell. The three Haywood High School Chapters of FCCLA (Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America) are concerned about the recent violence that has plagued our community. Through the FCCLA STOP (Students’ Taking On Prevention) the Violence national program, FCCLA members have planned a campaign to do their part to bring this violence to an end.

The FCCLA STOP the Violence program empowers youth with attitudes, skills, and resources in order to recognize, report, and reduce youth violence. The FCCLA members have used this program to provide guidance and implement the plan of action in the school and in the community. The campaign has been named Not One More…(Tear Shed, Not One More Life Lost.) The students have planned an ambitious project in hopes of promoting acts of kindness, not violence.
