It is that time of year where students and advisors are heading off to compete in events that they had been preparing for all year. Whether it be Robotics, TSA, FBLA, HOSA, or FCCLA, or music small groups, we have students heading in every such direction.  It is always great to see what students accomplish outside the classroom!

Our FBLA chapter usually has success at state and always find the conference a valuable experience. From a keynote speaker to workshops to competitions to campaign luncheon for future officers, there is always something for everyone to expand their horizons. This year they even college representatives attending to meet with students.
