Students often get involved in FBLA, Future Business Leaders of America by taking business classes and then they can use the things they have learned in their classes to compete in the competitions.
Eighteen FBLA students went to Weber State University on November 29 to compete. Of the eighteen students that went to the region competition, half of the students who went came out victorious.
¨I took Leadership Principles here at Fremont and we learned about those theories and then when I went to go take that test at region,” said senior Selja Chaudhari, who placed first in organizational leadership. “They had the same exact theories that helped me know what I was talking about, like what motivated those people to do that and just things about leadership.¨
The winners not only get bragging rights though.
¨For first place you got a certificate and a medal and the other places you just get a certificate for it,¨ Chaudhari said.
Many of the students enjoy their experience with FBLA.
¨I actually really enjoyed it. I liked working with the people. Since I am also an officer, all the officers are really nice and itś fun to know more about business,¨ Chaudhari said.
This won’t be the last time the students will compete in these skills though.
¨We have state competitions and Nationals, if we make it that far,¨ Chaudhari said.
