FBLA students qualify for the State Leadership Conference

By EMMA NORMAN- Each year, the IUP Eberly College of Business hosts FBLA members from all over the Region 3 Area in the FBLA Regional Conference. The conference determines who in each business event qualifies for the State Leadership Conference. This year an astounding sixty-eight students from Indiana Senior High School qualified for the state conference.

The State Leadership Conference will be held in Hershey during the month of April. The events range from Accounting and Financing, to Publication and Graphic Design. Students can choose an event depending on whether or not they choose to take a test or present a project.

Indiana students couldn’t be more excited. Junior Jack Finegan was eager to share his excitement about the conference expressing, “I feel honored to be one of the many Indiana qualifiers for the state conference. It’s going to be a fun time and a fantastic learning experience. Studying, planning with my team, and Quizlet definitely helped me prepare.”

Freshman Kennedi Kunkle is also thrilled about qualifying for states expressing, “I am super-excited that I qualified for states and thankful for the opportunity to participate in FBLA. Already, as a freshman, it has taught me so much. I cannot wait to participate in the activities at states and spend time with friends while learning lifelong valuable information from speakers.”

Some IHS students did exceptionally well on the challenging tests. Sophomore Bradley Petras scored a 91 out of 100 on his test and is excited about qualifying for states. “I am very happy about qualifying for the State Leadership Conference. It was a really great time last year and I look forward to competing again this year at the state level. I was really proud and also a bit surprised when I found out how high my score was. All the studying that I did really paid off. I expected to qualify; however, I was happy when I found out that I won by a pretty good margin.”

The FBLA advisers at Indiana are very proud of how well the team performed at the conference as well as how hard the students worked and prepared. FBLA adviser Mr. Bryan Schreyer commented, “This is the most students we’ve had qualify since I’ve been an adviser. We attribute our success to the overall education we provide at IHS.”

Both the FBLA students and their advisers are looking forward to the thrill and challenge of taking the next step and competing at the state level.
