    Here at James Clemens High School we dedicate ou time and energy into suing the skills that we develop in our classes to improve our communities. In our recent past, we hosted a Thanksgiving meats/dessert fundraiser in which we used the proceeds to fund our projects and trips throughout the year. Our biggest project involves the students budgeting for and then buying groceries. Those groceries are then used for cooking meals for the Huntsville Salvation Army Community Kitchen. The JCHS chapter of FCCLA is passionate about our community service.
