2016 National Cluster Meeting,
Denver, CO November 4-6
Delegates were involved in the Skill Demonstration Events as participants and National Room Consultants and in Life Smarts/Knowledge Bowl Competition. Opening Session was exciting and motivating as delegates listed to interactive speaker, Eddie Slowikowski describe the importance of looking into yourself as you make your life choices – your “Unlimited Possibilities”. Eddie finished the evening with an exciting dance through the decades show.
Closing Session included National Program promotion, inspirational speaker Cara Filler whose twin was killed in a high speed car crash. Cara spoke about preventative measures that can save teen lives. She definitely got our delegates attention! The evening ended with the greatly anticipated Skill Demonstration Event Trophies and the announcement of the Life Smarts/Knowledge Bowl Teams advancing to Nationals in Nashville, TN.
Thanks to National Room Consultants: Maggie Stermetz, Kiley Johnson and Sydney Thomas.
