FBLA club members preparing for regional competition

FBLA members at Fall Leadership Conference

Wayne County ATC’s Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) club has been very busy so far this school year.  Students are very glad to get back to a more “normal” school year which has allowed them to be more active with their club and increase their membership.  They started out the year with installing their new officers for the year.  They were: President, Rylee Mullins, Vice-President, Haley Coffey, Secretary, Harley Hodge, and Treasurer, Amber Clark.  

The next thing on their agenda was to attend a Fall Leadership Conference at WKU.  There current officers and other members interested in future officer positions learned about the duties of various offices along with upcoming events at the state and national level of FBLA.  They participated in a scavenger hunt on WKU’s campus and played FBLA trivia.  

The club has also participated in various Local Leadership Challenges.  They had former FBLA member, Stefanie Neal, attend one of the early meetings to talk about her FBLA experiences which included being an officer and competing at the regional, state, and national levels.  She talked about her fun experience and how she was able to travel places she otherwise would not have been able to do.  She also explained how she felt her involvement with FBLA shaped her career.

Other activities have included wearing purple to school to bring awareness to World Prematurity Awareness Day and posting about Enterprise Day on the school’s Facebook page to recognize how important free enterprise is to the American people.  They also participated in a community service project which brought Financial Literacy awareness to the elementary students during their after school reading program.  There they read to the students and had the student read to them various books promoting and explaining the role of money and their financial needs.  

Club members are now gearing up to compete in a variety of business related topics at their regional competition which will be held on February 25, 2022 in Bowling Green, KY. The past several years has proven to be very successful for former and current members as they have been able to make it all the way to the national level.  We are looking forward to trying to bring more trophies home this year.
