Utah ACTE Carl Perkins Service Award
Congratulations to Candace Wilson, selected as Utah ACTE’s Carl Perkins Service Award. Candace has lived by the mantra that those who can help others, should help others. Influenced by the book, Christmas Jars, Candace and her FCCLA chapter created Christmas jars and collected over $24,000.00 to help meet the needs of the Saratoga Springs community. Additional fundraisers have supported organizations such as the United Way, the Utah Food Bank and No Kid Hungry. As an FCCLA advisor, Candace invests a huge amount of time training her students how to be successful in their leadership responsibilities. These students are lucky to have Candace guiding them and giving them these amazing opportunities to become true leaders. Even though these projects are extremely time consuming and taxing, Candace is always pleasant, and takes on all projects with enthusiasm and dedication.
