FBLA Students Attend State Leadership Conference
Members of the Putnam County R-1 Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) recently attended the 2012 Missouri FBLA Leadership Conference held on April 22th, 23th, and 24th in Columbia, Missouri. This year was especially exciting because our very own Jake B served as President of Missouri FBLA (and Mrs. Rhodes was a member of the Executive Board.) Our students were able to get first-hand officer experience at this years SLC, and many memories were made.
FBLA is a career and technical student organization for all 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.
