[April 24, 2013]  MOUNT PULASKI -- Cady Lowery, a junior at Mount Pulaski High School, has been chosen to represent the Illinois Association of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America as a state officer for the 2013-2014 school year.

The FCCLA state conference was held Thursday-Saturday at the Prairie Capital Convention Center in Springfield.

Lowery was chosen by a panel of judges that included FCCLA advisers as well as delegates selected from each school. Her selection was based on a speech with the theme "Leave Your Mark" and on the ability to answer questions, all in front of a public audience on Friday afternoon. Lowery was installed as a state officer for the executive council at the closing ceremonies on Saturday.

This is Lowery's second year as a member of FCCLA, and she is only the third person in Mount Pulaski FCCLA history to be a state officer. Previous state officers from Mount Pulaski were Katherine Wachter and Alex Mathias.

Lowery's adviser, Wyatt Waterkotte, said: "Cady is an outstanding student who is extremely deserving of this honor. I am incredibly proud of her accomplishments and am certain that she will do an awesome job helping to lead the Illinois State Association this coming year."
