The Menchville FBLA club attended a conference on March 2, bringing home several awards in the process.

Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) combines public education for middle and high school students with business leadership for the future through leadership and career development programs. This organization is the largest business-based student program in operation. Members of FBLA can participate in Business Achievement Awards (BAA) conferences to collect accomplishments to create an outstanding business image early in life.

Samantha Carlton, president of the club, said that the competition was filled with many interesting questions that were fun to answer. She also said there were some situationally tricky questions that they were asked, but were able to overcome to earn top awards.

FBLA is a club for those who want to learn about the future of business in America, and for those who enjoy a learning experience on a situational level. FBLA is always looking for new members to join, and would love new faces to prepare to be the future business leaders of America. Membership is ten dollars and you must be enrolled in a business and information technology class to enroll.
