On Wednesday, October 4, 2017, the members of Valley R-6 High School FCCLA took their annual trip to the regional conference at Sullivan High School. The theme of the conference was friends. Throughout the conference there were short skits featuring Region 5 President Dylan Turner and reporter, Blake Boyer. The members were entertained by motivational speaker and musician Preston Pugmire and hypnotist Josh McVicar.
We started the conference with each officer giving a short report about what was going on in his/her department. We then saw the first skit, performed by the officers. The skits matched the theme of friends.
We then moved on to our first speaker, Preston Pugmire. He did a presentation about being a good listener. He picked four volunteers and had them help him create a song. The first time he recorded them separately, not working together, and created music. His point was listen to others and make music, not noise.
Our second speaker was Josh McVicar, a hypnotist. He chose 20 volunteers from the audience. He then hypnotized them and convinced them they were freezing cold, burning up, being chased, divas on a tv show, and that they had won the lottery. He even convinced two boys that one of them was eight and a half months pregnant with a 23 pound baby and the other was the dad.
After Josh McVicar finished his presentation, we watched a slideshow of all the chapters in Region 5. Then it was time for awards. Valley R-VI won an award for the best name tags.
The Region 5 FCCLA Conference was an all-around fun time, and we cannot wait to attend next year. - Conner Payne

Varsity played a really tough game and took them to three sets and never gave up. Athletics Director Chad Middleton stated “This year’s Valley R-6 senior volleyball players have all displayed leadership, hard work, and determination both on and off the floor. Being a student athlete can be tough, but these young ladies have handled it with ease.” From all the staff at Valley R-6 School District, we wish you luck in whatever direction life may take you. Coach Caley Cooper is proud of her team and stated “The girls have worked hard and never given up this season. It’s been very enjoyable, and we’ve made lots of memories.” - Emma Bradley
