Cody Mooneyhan, a Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) educator at Grayson County High School, is one of two Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) advisers who will be recognized with the 2019-2020 Educated Adviser Award.

FCCLA will honor Mooneyhan at FCCLA’s first-ever Virtual National Leadership Conference, July 7 through 9.

To be considered for this award, advisers must complete a minimum of 5 CEUs, or 50 PDUs, from FCCLA specific events.

“I am constantly amazed by our FCCLA advisers,” said Sandy Spavone, Executive Director of FCCLA. “Specifically, Educated Advisers are individuals who lead by example in and out of the classroom. They are fully committed to representing FCCLA’s purpose through hard work and dedication, and they symbolize everything FCCLA stands for.”

Educated Advisers embody FCCLA’s mission to promote personal growth and leadership development through Family and Consumer Science education. Their work ethic is an epitome for all FCCLA students and advisers across the nation. These noteworthy individuals dedicate themselves to FCCLA to ensure members develop strong characters and skills that work to serve their school, community, and state.
