Career & Technical Student Organizations Serve their community

Check out how our CTSO's have been serving the community.

Columbia FFA members from Hickman High School made  "no-sew" fleece blankets to donate to Ronald McDonald House.

Columbia FFA members from Battle High School participated in "Adopt a Soldier" where they collected items for a care package for a local soldier (a Hickman graduate) who is deployed overseas.

Columbia FFA members from Rock Bridge High School are writing letters to Santa as part of the Macy's Believe campaign. For every letter written, Macy's donates $1 to the Make-A-Wish foundation. They also collected food and money for the Central Missouri Food Bank. 

SkillsUSA members sponsored a "Mitten Tree" to collect hats, mittens and scarfs for Rainbow House, a children's emergency shelter and homeless youth program.

 FEA members collected winter clothing for students at Alpha Hart Elementary.

FBLA members from Hickman High School baked cookies and delivered them to Rainbow House and McCambridge Center. 

DECA members helped with the marketing of Columbia's First Night (now called Eve Fest). Students handed out flyers in the Thanksgiving parade and put up posters in local businesses.


In January, HOSA members will be sponsoring a Blood Drive with the American Red Cross.

  1. I am always so proud of the quality of students who choose to take classes at the CACC and be in leadership positions.
    Whether they are participating members or serve as an officer in their CTSOs.
    Thank you to the students and to the advisors of these organiziations for serving our community.
