District 7 State Officer
Vice President of Programs
District 7 Leadership Team
Welcome to District 7! I, Emma Painter, am your 2019-2020 Vice President of National Programs. As a senior in high school, you can find me hard at work finishing college applications and essays—which I don’t mind, since I really like writing. I hope to become a clinical psychologist after high school so that I can help those who struggle with mental illness just like me. On my days off, you might catch me lounging by Lake Norman (under an umbrella of course), novel in hand, chilling with my friends at Valley Hills Mall, or listening to music!
I joined FCCLA in my freshman year at Bandys High School and have been involved ever since! I became Secretary of my chapter in my sophomore year and First Vice President in my Junior year. In short, I love FCCLA! If you come to District 7, you absolutely must visit my home county, Catawba County.
The Hickory Museum of Art (North Carolina’s second oldest museum and the first southeastern museum to collect American art) resides in Hickory and boasts exhibits of nineteenth to twenty-first-century American art and contemporary Southern folk art, educational and creative classes, and even yoga! Its mission is “to bring people together and inspire creativity through the power of art.”
