Future Business Leaders of America https://www.fbla-pbl.org/

FBLA had a great trip in Topeka on Thursday and Friday! All students performed well and represented our school and community in a way to make us proud. I was proud of them all for the conference performance, but even more so with how they carried themselves away from the conference while we were out eating, at the hotel, and around Topeka. They were respectful, left places clean, and sure to say 'please' and 'thank you'. That is a testament to our great community and school!

We had some great results from the competitions, with a few newcomers getting on stage as top ten placers. The top ten placings at state were:
