FCSLA In the Community
Fraternalist of the Year and Youth of the Year
Every year, FCLSA receives many exemplary nominations from our members, branches, and districts for the Fraternalist of the Year and Youth of the Year awards. These nominees go above and beyond for FCSLA and their communities, so choosing only one person to honor for each award is a difficult task.
FCSLA is pleased to announce the 2020 Youth of the Year honoree, Lilian Marie Lyons (J011, St. Louis MO).
FCSLA is pleased to recognize the members below as Fraternalist of the Year and Youth of the Year.
