Seven students, all members of Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), attended the state FBLA conference at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta from March 23 and 24. The members competed in various state competitive events and attended several leadership workshops at the conference.
Three members brought home awards. Rasheed Tromp and Shamarr Wilson placed first in the Business Plan Competition qualifying them for Nationals in June. Ashley Stevens placed fourth in Database Design and Applications. The chapter also won Chapter of the Year, Bronze Level Award. Chapters receive points for chapter management, conference attendance, recruitment, public relations, and participation in national and state projects.
Instructor and adviser Kristin Caverly noted that this has been a tremendous accomplishment for these students who have been working tirelessly all year as they have worked and prepared for this moment.
