Wisconsin Association of Family and Consumer Sciences Student Unit Conference
A group of 27 family & consumer sciences students from UW-Stevens Point and UW-Stout attended the Wisconsin Association of Family and Consumer Sciences Student Unit Conference on Nov. 9 in Stevens Point.
The event was student planned and included three guest speakers who spoke of the value and importance of an FCS education, discussed various forms of lesson plans, and explained professionalism in the classroom:
- Brett Lesniak, from SPASH High School FCS educator
- Kayla Correll, WAFCS Student Unit Head Chair, Greendale High School FCS educator
- Jeanne Schwass-Long, WAFCS President Elect
The students also discussed on how to apply for jobs in the future using WeCan and learned about the possibility of implementing ProStart, a culinary program, into your future classroom.
After the guest speakers, the students enjoyed lunch at the CPS Café and ended the day by making 46 pillow cases for a nonprofit organization called ConKerr Cancer. They were able to practice their sewing skills and also help children who are battling cancer by creating and sewing pillowcases.
