Raider FCA Welcomes Guest speaker & Teams up with SADD For movie Day
The Raider FCA welcomed guest speaker, Broc Litherland, on Monday, March 2. Broc shared his message about the importance of having a plan, but knowing that often times life won't go according to your plans. Broc explained that it is at these times that having a strong relationship with Christ will enable you to find peace in seeing how God's plans are being revealed and are better than you could have imagined. Raider FCA continue to show a strong turnout. We also held our first Raider FCA movie day on Sunday, March 8. We teamed up with the SADD club to gather in the SHS auditorium for a chance to relax and enjoy fellowship while watching the movie, "Save a Life". Upcoming spring events include student-led devotionals, elections for next year's Raider FCA executive board, and the annual year-end tradition of donuts & dodgeball!

The young women attended sessions on fitness, finances, positive thinking, self-defense, and good decision-making among other topics. Special Guest Lt.

The Keynote Speaker was Liz Forkin Bohannon, an alum of the television show "Shark Tank" who has developed her own shoe company called Sseko Sandals to help send Ugandan women to college.
