Family and Consumer Sciences at Mineral Wells High School offer an exciting combination of many different types and levels of courses. Students find their future by exploring career options, digging deeply into an area of interest, and experiencing a role before graduating from high school. This prepares them for college, career, or an immediate job opportunity upon graduation. Options in this department are Fashion Design, Advanced Fashion Design, Child Development and Principles of Human Services. Ms. Eady, the instructor in this department, says that “an important aspect of her curriculum involves allowing students to have a hands-on experience in every facet of the creative learning process.”
This year several Family and Consumer Science students placed in the FCCLA (Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America) Region II contest held in Waco on Feb. 17. Each student will advance to state competition in Corpus Christi in April.
