VICE PRESIDENT OF INDIVIDUAL DEVELOPMENT
After transferring to Crockett County High School in Alamo, TN for her sophomore year, Reese Erin Barker found her happy place in FCCLA after just 2 weeks of class! She immediately began taking leadership roles in class and in FCCLA by assisting chapter officers and entering the Career Investigation STAR event. Through her STAR Event she discovered the career of her dreams that utilized her passion of serving others and working with and serving children with special needs. Her growing love for FCCLA prompted involvement in FCCLA Leadership Camp in the fall of 2022 which was the beginning of her journey to become a part of the 2023-24 State FCCLA Executive Council. Reese first and foremost was a child of God. She spent numerous hours serving others for the Lord through her church youth group, VBS and children’s camps through her congregation. Reese was a gift giver, always preparing goodie bags or themed gifts to give others for special occasions or just to show her love and admiration. Reese was a seasoned manager for her school’s football team and a softball player, both of which her father coached. If you hung around Reese for any length of time, you would find she was a lover of all things DINOSAURS (the cute ones not the scary ones) and if asked what she thought would make the world a better place, she would be quick to tell you, “Unlimited Pickles!” Living Like Reese means different things to different people. The true essence of the campaign though is to be a servant, to be a leader, and to be a GOOD HUMAN.
