Cook High FBLA at SLOTS

On July 9, Cook High School Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) officers, Jaina Patel (President) and Greg Olson (Secretary), attended the Summer Leadership and Officer Training Summit at Crisp County High School. This event was attended in order to achieve a better understanding of leadership skills and to plan for the new school year. Destinee Walker (Vice-President), Caiytiana Smith (Treasurer), and Jose Gutierrez (Communications Chair) were unable to attend. To begin the day, all participants played several games that gave them a chance to mingle and work together. Next, officers were split in groups by position and worked to learn more about their roles. The training sessions were followed by a delicious lunch catered by Chick-fil-A and the sharing of several success stories. Later, groups were sent to various team building activities, and chapters worked together to plan for the upcoming school year. After an enjoyable day of planning and networking, the Cook High FBLA officers are prepared to help build a successful program for the local chapter this year. Mrs. Lori Carter and Mrs. Marsha Tillman accompanied the students to the training summit.

Bleckley County Joint CTSO Fundraiser a Success

The Bleckley County CTSOs FBLA, FCCLA, and HOSA want to extend our gracious appreciation for your support of our organizations through our BBQ plate fundraiser. Our students sold over 500 plates allowing many of our students to obtain the ability to attend Fall Motivational Rally at the Georgia National Fair, participate in fun activities at meetings and participate in upcoming competitions and conferences. We could not do this without the support of our community and we are so appreciative of each of you.

We are very proud of these young ladies and the efforts they put in to growing our program. We are hopeful for a better year than last year and last year was awesome!

We are so excited to have exceeded our membership from last year with just one week of school in the books! We hope to keep on growing one membership goal at the time!

Bleckley High Attends SLOTS

Bleckley County High School Future Business Leaders of America officers attended Summer Leadership Officer Training Summit (SLOTS) in Cordele and Cummings Georgia in July. SLOTS is a time for officers to work together to plan for the coming year pinpointing goals, advancements, expansions, recruitment and the like. These young ladies worked together to identify areas of service, education, leadership and progress that they wanted to focus on in the coming year.

This group of ladies works amazingly well with one another and we are super excited for the year to come. Co-President Olivia W., Vice-President Amanda K., Secretary Sophie K., Treasurer Alexis B., and Reporter Cassidy S. all attended the SLOTS in Cordele, Georgia on Tuesday and Co-President Maisi C. attended SLOTS in Cummings, Georgia. This group of officers has a lot planned for the coming year and all BCHS students who are interested in the world of Business or finding their place in an organization are welcome to visit us at visitation. We will be set up in the Commons area. You do NOT have to be in the Business Pathway courses to be a member. Come join us for the many adventures planned for the coming year!

The FBLA mission is to bring business and education together in a positive working relationship through innovative leadership and career development programs. We bring our mission to life through the application of our motto: Service, Education, and Progress.

FBLA is an integral part of the Business program and pathway at Bleckley County High School. We are hoping to grow our membership greatly this year. There are many opportunities for students to find their talents and gifts and use them for the betterment of their future and career plans. Students have the opportunity to go to a variety of Leadership Conferences and competitions throughout the year. As students move beyond state and head to national level competition they have opportunities to travel, meet people from around the world, network with a variety of fellow students, and take their competitive spirits to a whole new level!

Follow Your Vision with Cook High FBLA

The FBLA officers at Cook High School have been busy preparing for the new 2019-2020 year. After attending SLOTS, the officers worked several days before school began to plan and create a new bulletin board using the theme “Follow Your Vision with FBLA.” The bulletin board will be in place when new ninth graders tour the school during orientation. The FBLA officers will take advantage of the orientation to recruit new members by setting up a station and handing out brochures about Cook High FBLA. Our president is Jaina Patel, and she is on the Student Government committee and will also help with touring the ninth graders. The other officers include: Destinee Walker – Vice-President, Greg Olson – Secretary, Caiytiana Smith – Treasurer, and Jose Gutierrez – Communications Chair. The officers are very excited to begin the new year and have many projects planned for Cook High FBLA.
