DeKalb County High School Chapter of Future Business Leaders of America students have qualified to compete at the national level based on their performance at the recent Tennessee FBLA State Leadership Conference. The chapter also has a young lady who was elected to serve as state secretary on the FBLA Executive Council.
These top Business and Technology students from DeKalb County High School will be attending the Future Business Leaders of America National Leadership Conference and Institute for Leaders. They will join over 5,000 other conference delegates from across the nation to participate in national-level business skill competitions, workshops, business sessions, and the national officer candidate campaigns and elections.
Future Business Leaders of America is a national organization for high school, college, and middle school students preparing for careers in business and information technology occupations. The organization's activities and programs compliment classroom instruction by giving students practical experiences through application of the skills learned at school.
The local chapter is seeking sponsors to help fund the FBLA students' trip to the National Conference, which will be June 27-July 2 in Chicago, Illinois. The following students are eligible to attend this National Leadership Conference:
•Keely McKay, Anna Malone, and Hailey Walker: Community Service Project
•Nicole Atkins: Securities and Investments
•Hannah James: Tennessee FBLA State Secretary
•Aspen Flarity: Social Media Campaign
The cost of the trip is approximately $875 per student. This is the first time in several years that students locally have qualified for nationals. Unfortunately, there are no chapter funds available for these students and they are responsible for the cost of the trip.
