Hittin’ The Ground Running

Shiloh FBLA is off to a great start this year!!

The beginning of the year has been very busy. Our Interest meeting went well with 31 students in attendance. At the interest meeting we played Captains Coming as our leadership activity. We also talked about all the exciting events coming up, dues and fundraisers. This year we started off with a full team of officers with the exception of a Parliamentarian. All of them are excited to work this year and have great ideas for the success of our organization.

The week of  September 10-14 was rush week for our members. We decided to do a flash sale where for one week only we allowed the members  to join FBLA for only $15 for the basic membership instead of $25 , they also would receive a prize if they joined during this time. We were also successful in our first fundraiser with Otis Spunkmeyer. Several students participated and earned money for our future trips. One of our members K.W was the top seller for a consecutive two years including this year. We are so proud of all of his hard work.

Bleckley County High School FBLA Officers Waste No Time in Preparations for the Coming Year

Bleckley County High School Future Business Leaders of America is proud to announce the officers for the coming year. Presidents Jordan S. and Jillian G., Vice President Emily A., Junior Vice President Olivia W., Alex N. Reporter, Amanda K. Secretary, Maisi C. Parliamentarian, and Nick S. Historian.

These officers have been working hard throughout the summer in preparation of making this school year the best yet in Bleckley High FBLA. Presidents Jillian G. and Jordan S. met with advisers earlier in June to lay the ground work for officers over the coming months and year. Officers Nick S., Amanda K., Maisi C., Jillian G. and Emily A. worked in their initial officer preparation day to make plans for their FBLA program of work. Following this meeting, officers met to enjoy a day of fellowship, planning, developing, socializing and then ended the day with a movie!

These preparation meetings combined led to a VERY productive day at Summer Leadership and Officer Training Summit. This was a day spent with other FBLA officers and leaders from throughout the state in developing skills that they can use over the coming months as they develop their own styles and EMERGE as Leaders in FBLA.

Congratulations to these young ladies and gentlemen in the coming year. We look forward to watching you grow and EMERGE into your leadership roles and styles!
