FBLA members qualify for nationals

Wa-Hi’s Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) club took 18 students to this year’s State Business Leadership Conference in Bellevue, Washington, April 4-7.

Wa-Hi received special recognition at the opening ceremony for their 20 percent membership growth and received $50 at the closing ceremony for placing second in a club-participation competition at state. Washington FBLA is extremely competitive, and placing in the top ten at state is no small feat. The top four in every event qualify for FBLA Nationals this summer in Baltimore, Maryland. This year, Wa-Hi will be sending four members to the national conference. The results for the 2018 State Business Leadership Conference are as follows.
