FBLA is a career and technical student organization for high school students participating in business programs. Over 2,750 members and advisers representing 426 chapters throughout the state met to elect state officers, transact business of the state chapter, participate in leadership and career workshops, and compete in the state leadership awards program. Business Teachers Theresa Taylor and Pam Pensel accompanied the students to the conference. "It was a joy to take these outstanding young men to the state conference. I am extremely proud of all five of them and look forward to National Competition," commented Mrs. Taylor.
