CULLMAN, Ala. – The Cullman County Board of Education on Thursday afternoon took time at the beginning of its June meeting on Thursday to recognize Cold Springs High School students Madeline Mitchell and Piper Stricklin for their gold medals at state level Future Career and Community Leaders of America competition. Mitchell was also honored as an Alabama State FCCLA Officer for 2020/21, and will compete later this summer at the national FCCLA convention.

Mitchell’s competitive project was a presentation on her chosen career field, financial advising and what is required to enter that field.

Stricklin’s project was on leadership and identifying her own strengths and weaknesses as a leader. When asked about these points by Superintendent Dr. Shane Barnette, she identified working well with others as one of her strengths.
