August 28, 2019

FCCLA's Master Adviser national award recognizes advisers who have successfully advised an affiliated chapter for a minimum of three years, continuously promoted FCCLA and FCS education, operated an integrated chapter with a balanced program of work, facilitated youth-centered activities, and continues to integrate new ideas and FCCLA happenings.

Thanks to the guidance and support of FCCLA Master Advisers, members are able to excel in competitive events, serve in leadership roles, gain real world skills through FCS education, and positively impact families, careers and communities. FCCLA Master Advisers are essential in motivating and mentoring members to reach their highest potential.

In the last five years with Gottsch as Cherokee FCCLA's Adviser, the chapter has had: 23 state STAR event qualifiers – eight state champions, four second-place state winners and four third-place state winners; eight national qualifier teams in the Virtual Business Personal Finance Challenge – one national championship team, two second-place national teams, one third-place national team, one fifth-place national team and one sixth-place national team; one state officer; two state officer candidates, seven district officers; and one district president.

In addition, the chapter has received the following recognition. In 2018-2019: Gold Star Chapter, 75% FACS Class Membership, National FCCLA Go for the Red Bronze Membership Award, Student Body National Program Participant; in 2017-2018: second-place Spotlight on Projects Team, Gold Star Chapter, 75% FACS Class Membership; 2016-2017: Gold Star Chapter, 75% FACS Class Membership Award, National FCCLA Bronze Membership Award; 2015-2016: Silver Star Chapter, 100% FACS Class Membership Award, Gimme 5 Oklahoma FCCLA Membership Award.

"Master advisers deserve to be recognized for their accomplishments and continuing efforts to FCCLA and FCS education," said Sandy Spavone, executive director of FCCLA. "To honor these advisers only shows a small piece of how appreciative the board of directors, national staff, FCCLA members, and supporters are to have these advisers lead FCCLA chapters."
