The Wayne County Chapter of Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America recently participated in the statewide FCCLA initiative related to The Rae of Sunshine Foundation. The foundation was created after Taylor Rae Nolan committed suicide as an outreach to those who may need extra support. Taylor was a former state FCCLA officer. To learn more about the foundation, you can go to https://www.raeofsunshineky.org/Foundation. FCCLA members were encouraged to participate in the SMILE week activities which ranged from random acts of kindness to wearing yellow to represent the foundation's mission. All members created a name tag as part of the "Say My Name" initiative.
Rae of Sunshine - Foundation
The day Taylor Rae Nolan was born, her mother instantly knew she was a ray of sunshine with her olive skin, curly hair, and pretty red lips. She loved to play and - according to her family – was a little bossy from the very beginning.
