FBLA members excel, qualify for leadership conference

Seven Liberty High School students earned recognition during the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) Spring District meeting on Feb. 1.

Each year, Carmel High School hosts FBLA members from the District 3N area. The meeting determines who in each business event qualifies for the State Leadership Conference.

This year, two students from Liberty High School qualified for the State Leadership Conference and two students qualified as alternates.

The State Leadership Conference will be held in Binghamton in 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.

Liberty High School students Cascio Fonseca and Steven Leal will represent Liberty in April in the categories of “Public Speaking” and “Job Interview”, respectively.

Sarah Kleinberger and Alexandra Riley will be on standby as alternates in the categories of “Client Services” and “Impromptu Speaking.”

In addition, the following student members placed in some of the practice competitions that took place during the Feb. 1 meeting:

  • Michael Cohen earned second place in “Accounting.”
  • Abby Milling earned fifth place in “Business Calculations.”
  • Paul Symanski earned second in “Sports Management” and fourth in “Business Calculations.”

 

Update, Feb. 14:
