Wilsbach BANN
Hannah Wilsbach, a member of Middletown Area High School’s Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), achieved a gold medal in the Nutrition and Wellness event at the annual FCCLA National Leadership Conference. Wilsbach joined more than 7,500 FCCLA student members and advisors in Atlanta, Georgia from June 28 to July 2 to participate in the competition, career training, and workshops.

Hannah’s award-winning project had a direct impact on MAHS athletes. She planned monthly menus and exercise plans for each member of the volleyball team after assessing health and performance goals. At the state competition Wilsbach won a $1000 grant to purchase healthy smoothie makers and exercise equipment for each participant in the project.

Her participation in the state and national competitions was financially supported by the Blue and Gold Club, the Middletown Area Blue Raider Foundation, the Middletown Alumni Association and the Middletown Area Educators Association.

FCCLA is a student organization that helps youth become leaders and address important personal, family, work, and societal issues through Family and Consumer Sciences education. FCCLA has more than 160,000 members and more than 5,300 chapters from 49 state associations, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. FCCLA is the only student organization with a central focus on family.

The MAHS FCCLA chapter has a positive impact on the community. Chapter members sponsor a field trip for third graders each year, volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House, assist with the RaiderPacks program, maintain the MAHS vegetable garden, support the military, and celebrate cultural diversity with their annual event called World Tour. Chapter members are grateful for support from the Middletown community for their part in making these events possible.
