This summer a group of seven students representing the Western Wayne Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) chapter participated in the organization’s annual National Leadership Conference held in Baltimore, Maryland.

Prior to the start of the conference, the Pennsylvania delegation– numbering more than 600–had an opportunity to do some sightseeing including a visit to the Inner Harbor, a dinner cruise on the Potomac, a tour of nearby  Annapolis, and a crab fest.

Once the conference began, competition in more than 60 events was held.  Those attending included Ezra Tetreault, the newly elected PA FBLA Vice President at large,  Allison Mattern, voting delegate; Sydney Peet, Intro to FBLA; Darlene Black and Kate Mattern, Intro to Parliamentary Procedure; Jillian Dudley, Word Processing; and Kirsten Metschulat, Impromptu Speaking.

During the Awards of Excellence program, Sydney Peet captured a tenth-place award in Intro to FBLA.

Accompanying the students was local chapter adviser and business teacher, Theresa Lubash, and Fran Vitovsky, former chapter adviser.
