Our Motto:

Toward New Horizons

Colors:

The colors are red and white. Red symbolizes strength, courage, and determination; personal qualities leading to happiness through a positive self-image. White symbolizes sincerity of purpose and integrity of action; qualities that help individuals build a better tomorrow.

Emblem:

As the millennium turns, so does the version of the FCCLA logo.   This futuristic logo may not hold the traditions of the past logo, but it shows that FCCLA is a dynamic, active organization bound for the future. The dominate collegiate lettering articulates a focus on education and student leadership.  The logo is red, the color of the rose as a sign of strength.  The swooping arrow arch is a common motif in today's designs and definately embodies an active organization that moves toward new arenas.  With it's space-like feel, this logo is sure to last through the next fifty years, but will always be linked to the time when FHA at the turn of the century changed to FCCLA.
