Driving through obstacles, sophomore Carson Schumtz participates in part of the FBLA tour of Werner Enterprises. Every year before the State Leadership Conference, FBLA students take a tour of certain businesses and learn a little about how they are run. “It was cool, in a way the simulation felt really real, it had all the variables, but I don’t think I could ever drive a truck like that as well as it seemed,” Schumtz said.
Accepting her second place award, sophomore Jocelyn Daubendiek shakes hands with FBLA state officer Cody McCain. Students in the top three positions get the chance to go to nationals and compete as representatives for their state. “I’m excited for the trip,” Daubendiek said, “I am looking forward to meeting new people and going to Tennessee because I’ve never been there before.”
Accepting the award for their event senior Molly Bond, Abigail Hamik (not pictured) and sophomore Alison Raszler take eighth place in marketing. Some tests at FBLA State Leadership Conference allow students to compete in groups. “It was a bummer we didn’t perform but it was exciting to place at all,” Bond said.
