Due to the recent increase of COVID-19 cases, the FCCLA club has postponed and adapted preference activities as a precaution for staff and student health.

Preference week was planned to be from November 16th through the 19th. However, Gov. Gary Hebert’s two-week ban on extracurricular activities made it difficult for FCCLA.

 “A lot of the planning we do had to change,” said senior Liz Madsen, who is a member of FCCLA, “because usually we just pull up last year’s plans as like a guideline, but this year that wasn’t really an option. COVID has made it much more complicated.”

With unexpected setbacks, Madsen and fellow FCCLA members had to cancel this year’s preference dance. Nevertheless, broadcasts during advisory and other safety provisions will allow for students to still be involved in preference activities.  

“We still want students to be able to enjoy pref week,” said FCCLA advisor Auralee Brooks. “Even though there is no dance and everything is not ideal, we want everyone to be involved and the advisory broadcasts will help us do that.”

Despite the dance being canceled, many pref traditions will be continued, they might just look a little different. For example, six senior boys will still be chosen to compete in the Preferred Man contest. 

Part of the contest is when the boys go around during lunch trying to win votes from students. Usually, the boys would bake and sell cupcakes, but that didn’t seem appropriate due to COVID-19. To make the best out of a difficult situation, senior and FCCLA member Azy Freeman came up with a creative solution. 

“This year, to be a little safer, we are going to have the boys sell scrunchies during lunch instead,” Freeman said. “They’ll use the sewing machines to make the scrunchies themselves.”

The scrunchies are just a simple adaptation FCCLA can make in this unusual preference week. Regardless of all the changes that are to be made, students are hopeful and excited to see what’s in store. 

“It’s weird how there won’t be a dance or normal pref assembly,” junior Spencer Day said. “But I am glad that we at least still get something. Plus, it will be super fun to see what they do change.”

Senior Brooklyn Burgess, feels similarly, especially since it is her senior year. Even with no dance, Day and Burgess look forward to preference week and they embrace the new changes.

“I’m sad that there won’t be a normal pref this year because pref is tons of fun,” Burgess said. “Just because COVID kinda messed it all up and it’s different this year doesn’t mean that it won’t be fun, because I already know that it’s going to be a blast.”
