Katelyn Boone receives C.J scholarship for FCCLA


On Wednesday April 10th FCCLA President Katelyn Boone received the C.J. Davidson scholarship valued at $18,000. Boone qualified for the scholarship by being an active member of FCCLA, majoring in Family Consumer Science, and by attending the FCCLA state meeting to receive the scholarship.

“I want to major in FCS because it is something everyone should be involved in and there is something for everyone to learn,” Boone said. “The class helps you prepare for adult life.”

Bonne received the scholarship from a fund that was set up by C.J Davidson. In addition to the C.J. Davidson scholarship, Boone also received the Smith County Jr. Livestock show scholarship that is a local opportunity given by being a FCCLA member.

“I was very excited when I found out that I had won the scholarship,” Boone said. “I get $2,250 a semester, which will cover a big portion of my overall expenses.”

Boone is planning on attending Stephen F. Austin and majoring in Family Computer Science Education.

“I want to thank Mr. Davidson for his generosity and for believing in the goals of FCCLA,” Boone said. “I also want to thank Mrs. Allen for introducing me to FCCLA, for impacting my life and for inspiring me to want to be a teacher.”
