Aug. 22 Elida School News

Glenda Anthony (Advisor) and Quentin Griffin (NMFCCLA State Officer) from Elida High School have recently returned from theannualy FCCLA National Leadership Meeting held in Chicago, where they had the opportunity to “eXperience eXtreme Leadership.”
Mrs. Anthony and Quentin had a great time. They saw many new things; buildings taller than six stories high, Navy Pier, the Magnificent Mile on Michigan Avenue, The Blue Man Group, boat tours, and Chicago deep-dish pizza.
