District 7 Community Service Day Planned

District 7 President Brooke Glynn spearheaded the idea of doing a community service project during our district leadership meeting October 11.  District 7 FCCLA Chapters from Barnes County North, Edgeley, Ellendale, Enderlin, LaMoure, Lisbon, North Sargent @ Gwinner, Sargent Central @ Forman, and SRCTC @ Oakes as part of FCCLA’s national program Lead2Feed community service project. The group worked with Larry Schumacker of Fullerton, a producer of melons and year around lettuce, to pick squash and pumpkins. Larry donates produce at the growing season to the Great Plains Food Bank which service Eastern North Dakota and Western Minnesota.

Mock Car Crash

Rolla FCCLA hosted a mock car crash on October 6, 2017. Michael Kurtti and Keana Cahill, seniors at Rolla High School started the planning for the event in August before school started. They met with emergency personnel from the Rolla PD, Rolette County PD, Rolla Fire & Ambulance, the Rolette County Emergency Manger, Highway Patrol, and the owner’s of the Elick Funeral Home. The event also included two simulation trucks that came from Minot and Grand Forks. These trucks provided students with the inside view of what happens in the ambulance as well as in the emergency room.
5 students and 1 parent were involved in the mock crash, where 1 student was accused of texting while driving. This t-bone accident also showed what happens if you choose not to wear a seat belt, as one student was shown having flown through a window and was deceased. 
The simulated crash was followed up by a debriefing for the student body (grades 7-12) in the gym where the emergency personnel talked a little about their jobs and some important reminders about the major responsibility of driving, and highway patrol discussed the new laws regarding distracted driving.
