MHS FLBA attends state leadership conference
Merrill High School’s Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) members traveled to Wisconsin Dells to compete at the State Leadership Conference. The conference started with getting motivated by listening to Albert Mensah, who was raised in Ghanna, Africa and now travels the world spreading words of inspiration and motivation. The two day conference had workshops and tours for members to attend to increase their business knowledge as well as compete in business events. While participating at the conference students, were able to raise money for the March of Dimes through a Miracle Minute. Students also were able to be motivated by hypnotist Jim Wand, earn recognition for their professional dress, as well as network with chapters from throughout the state.
Students who place in the top 2 of each event earn the right to compete at National Leadership Conference. This year’s National Leadership Conference is being held in Anaheim, CA on June 27-30. Students have instilled their way for Igniting Innovation.
