Commissioner’s Council for Injury Prevention
Ms. Backberg's EMR and HOSA students have been working on the Battle of the Belt competition for the past three years, and out of the three, they have won the trophy twice. The Commissioner’s Council for Injury Prevention is having their quarterly meeting to discuss topics in the improvement of their Violence and Injury Prevention Program. The commissioner's council was so impressed with our student's work, they have invited them to Nashville to present the work they have done for the past three years, and the expectations out of our school this year. This is a huge opportunity for our senior students who have put in the hours and hard work on the Battle of the Belt Competition.
At the meeting, our students were presented their 4th Gold Award from the Tennessee Highway Safety Office. No other school has received this many gold awards. We are currently the all-time points leader in that program.

FCCLA National Leadership Conference
Eleven David Crockett FCCLA members ventured to Anaheim, California from June 27-July 5 to attend the National Leadership Conference for the Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA). The students competed at the National Level in five different STAR Events (Students Taking Action with Recognition). The students were awarded with the following medals:
- Mackenzie Robinette and Micayla Lane in Chapter Service Project Portfolio: Gold and first place in the Southern Region
- Gracie Robinette, Ali Keplinger, and Anthony Ricker in Hospitality, Tourism, & Recreation: Gold and first place in the Southern Region
- Jessie Stuart, Emmalyn Casey, and Kobe Wilcox in Life Event Planning: Gold
- Joey Hopkins in Career Investigation: Gold
- Izabella Strapp and Maddie Beavers in Sports Nutrition: Gold and first place in the Southern Region
Aside from competing, students attending the seven-day conference were immersed in skill-based workshops, Red Talks (similar to TED Talks) from expo participants, and skits by their peers. They watched keynote and guest speakers such as cardboard enthusiast Kyle Scheele, the Dude Be Nice campaign, and various culinary demonstrations.
The student-led conference allows members across The United States, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands to learn important skills for life, compete in community service based events, and meet other FCCLA members from across the country. Over 8,700 students were in attendance, the largest conference yet!
Family, Career and Community Leaders of America is a nonprofit national career and technical student organization for young men and women in Family and Consumer Sciences education in public and private schools through Grade 12. Everyone is part of a family, and FCCLA is the only national Career and Technical student organization with the family as its central focus. Today over 175,000 members in more than 5,300 chapters are active in a network of associations in 49 states, in addition to the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Involvement in FCCLA offers members the opportunity to expand their leadership potential and develop skills for life -- planning, goal setting, problem-solving, decision making, and interpersonal communication -- that are necessary in the home and workplace.
The David Crockett High School FCCLA had an amazing time at the conference and exploring California. The students are looking forward to bringing back new ideas to their chapter this fall.

Healthcare Heroes for Innovation
Lacie Broyles, a smiley 8-year-old from Jonesborough, tumbles and dances just like any other kid her age, but with some added challenges. Lacie was born without a radial bone in her left arm and is missing a thumb on her left hand, making her favorite activities a lot tougher.
"I can do all the things other kids can do," Lacie told WCYB. "It's just since I'm different it's harder."
Joleene Broyles, Lacie's mom, wanted to help but didn't know where to start.
"I came up with this design in my head and I was just thinking I need somebody who can do the 3D printing," she said.
After seeing a post on Facebook, the robotic teacher at David Crockett High School enlisted juniors Landon Hamaker and Jacob Nance to make a prosthetic device for Lacie.
Jacob and Landon were awarded the Healthcare Heros for Innovation award by the Tri-Cities Business Journal.
They accepted this award on July 19 at a Luncheon at the Carnegie Hotel. They were just one of many in healthcare that received an award for their contribution in the Tri-Cities.
