Karly Plemmons, First Vice President
Hi I am Karly Plemmons, your District 8 State Officer from North Buncombe High. I serve the best state in the Country as the North Carolina First Vice President. As a native of Western North Carolina I am so grateful to be able to call district 8 my home. Beautiful views, friendly people, eclectic music and creative culinary cuisine are just a few of the things to love about Western North Carolina.
What is not to love about district eight? In Hendersonville the annual apple festival draws people from across the state as well as the country to celebrate on of the regions prized crops. Plan a staff trip here complete with an apple fritter and apple cider. Need a day trip get away? Escape the monotony of everyday life by spending a day at one of our beautiful lakes. Lake Fontana, Lake Santeelah and Lake James are just a few of the places to spend a sunny day. Looking to try something new? Downtown Asheville’s culinary scene is constantly evolving, pair that with eclectic street performers and Asheville’s own drum circle and you have an experience you will never forget.
Wanting to slow the pace of everyday life? Our district is home to the most visited National park in the country, the Blue Ridge Parkway. This is where you can find me almost any day of the week. Hiking up mountain trails, picture perfect overlooks, and refreshing secluded swimming holes, you are sure to find your own hidden gem on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Just wanting to hang? The Parkway is also one of the best places to hang up an Eno and watch the sunset. District 8 is one of the most memorable districts there is from the mountains to the city life you will never be bored.
District 8 is full of hard working and charitable chapters. One thing that makes our district stand out is how closely we work together to be able to accomplish more. I am ecstatic to see what we will all be able to accomplish this year by continuing to work together. We all are working to recruit more active members so that everyone can have the amazing experience that is FCCLA. Thank you for all your support to allow us to be able to do this.
