Power of One completers have completed each of the following units to achieve this success. A Better You - improves personal traits. Family Ties - helps members get along better with family members. Working on Working - helps members explore work options, prepare for a career, or sharpen skills useful in the business. Take the Lead - helps students develop leadership qualities. Speak Out for FCCLA - helps members tell others about positive experiences in FCCLA.

The PHS chapter was also recognized as the top Power of One chapter in Region 1.
