Competing in Chicago, Illinois among 12,000 students in over 70 categories, Weber High’s FBLA Chapter went with high expectations and came home with high awards from this summer’s National Conference.
Indiana Plant, a Weber High student brought home 1st Place and the title of National Champion in the Intro to Event Planning Event. Kyler Ferrin, a recent graduate earned 6th Place in Digital Video Productions and the Community Service Project presented by Raegan Rogers, Alyse Radle, and Indiana Plant took 3rd Place.
Congratulations to all of these students who are led by FBLA advisers Alan Rawlins, Kyle Stanger, and Angie Larsen who are also business/marketing instructors at Weber High.
Only two percent of FBLA students advance to the national level, so just getting there to compete is a great achievement. For students to make finals at Nationals in a presentation event they must be in the top 2 of their preliminary section out of 13-14 students or in the case of Indiana Plant she had to have at Top 15 test score to get to the role play round.
In the Community Service Project event there were 94 teams, while Digital Video Productions had 97 and Intro to Event Planning had 88 teams. Along with these five students, Weber High’s Partnership with Business team also made finals and Top 12, however, did not make Top 10. Sixteen other students besides these eight listed also attended the Nationals Conference in a variety of other events make a total of 24 total who attended the conference with their three advisers.
