Wadena-Deer Creek High School FACS teacher Sheila Winkels couldn't contain her excitement when a new, high-tech embroidery machine arrived this week. Thanks to Sourcewell, WDC High School has been selected as a test site for a high-tech embroidery machine, which was installed this week by Nathan Thiesfeld, Dan Bays and Darren Perry of Haldeman & Homme Inc., the company that manufactures and provides support and training for these machines.
Fourteen WDC Family, Career and Community Leaders of America members traveled to Ortonville High School to attend the mid-winter region meeting and compete in STAR (Students Taking Action with Recognition) events. Competing and advancing to state competition were Makayla Varella, Emma Mehl, Elliot Doyle, Joslynn Judd, Angela LeComte, Paige Barthel, Frannie Bakken and Caitlin Savage. Emma Mehl and Elliot Doyle also performed in the talent contest and have advanced to perform at the FCCLA MN State Leadership Conference.
