Local students and members of Lakeland Union High School Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) traveled to Stratford High School in early February to compete in a variety of academic events and attend professional development workshops at their annual Regional Leadership Conference. In all, 12 members from LUHS competed at Regionals. The top three competitive event finalists at Regionals qualify for participation at the State Leadership Conference.
Of the thirteen Lakeland students that competed, four students are advancing to the State Competition in Madison in April. Jenna Seidl placed second in Business Communication, Jacob Hayes and David Bock placed second in Introduction to Business Presentation, and Timothy Seidl placed first in Business Math & Financial Literacy.
At conferences, FBLA members compete in a variety of academic events related to Business and Information Technology. LUHS students engage through both written tests and role-plays with judges from the industry. These events give students real work experiences and allow them to bridge the gap between schoolwork and technical skills. Most of all, the conferences give students the chance to make new friends, win awards, and be recognized for their incredible work.
FBLA has divisions in middle school, high school, college, and at the professional level, supporting individuals in their ability to network and build important skills in the fields of Business and Information Technology.
