Fairfax HS student Sierra Warden has been awarded the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) Access Scholarship. Unanimously selected as one of only six recipients nationwide, Warden has been granted a scholarship worth $5,000 to attend the 2023 National Leadership Conference (NLC) in Denver, CO, from July 2-6. This year’s scholarships were generously sponsored by the Governor’s Highway Safety Association (GHSA), Octane Public Relations, and Texas FCCLA. The Access Scholarship, introduced by FCCLA in 2022, was created to provide life-changing opportunities for student members and their chapter advisers to attend NLC.
Warden was one of over 150 applicants for the scholarship. FCCLA members in good standing were eligible to apply for the scholarship, which was awarded based on the criteria of financial need, academic merit, community engagement, and school/FCCLA involvement.
Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) is a dynamic and effective national student organization that helps young men and women become leaders and address important personal, family, work, and societal issues through Family and Consumer Sciences education. FCCLA has over 225,000 members and more than 5,000 chapters across the nation.
