FBLA competed in the state leadership conference in Topeka this past weekend. We were extremely successful with 7/9 of our students placing on stage. In individual competition, first timer Rachel Binau took second with a bid to nationals in the Accounting 1 test and Ashlynn Pollard took 5th in Client Services.
In team competition, Entrepreneurship placed 4th with a bid to nationals. This team included Asa Unruh, Clyde Johnson, and Isaac Rivera. Global Business placed 4th with a bid to nationals. This team included Laban Massey and Trace Tobin. Marketing took 2nd with a bid to nationals and included Rachel Binau and Ashlynn Pollard. Lastly, Hospitality Management placed FIRST with a bid to nationals! It was exciting to see them as the last men standing on the stage. This team included Trace Tobin and Isaac Rivera.
As a first year Adviser, it was truly amazing to see these young adults compete in these competitions. To see how well they can handle the type of adversity thrown at them in these situations is impressive.
