Four members of the Tyrone chapter of the Future Business Leaders of America and the chapter adviser, Sara S. Gardner, are currently attending the 2004 Pennsylvania FBLA State Leadership Conference.
The conference is scheduled March 29-31 at the Seven Springs Resort in Champion, PA.
The FBLA members attending the State Leadership Conference include: Amber Hunter, business calculations; Stevi Medina, computer applications; Jessica Ott, accounting I and Bridget Smith, business calculations.
At the conference, individual, chapter and team competitive events relating to business skills and leadership will take place. Also, the outstanding adviser award will be presented to an FBLA adviser who has made a significant contribution in directing FBLA activities.
At the conference awards ceremony, the American Lung Association, the recipient of this year’s state project, will be given a monetary contribution to be used toward the organization’s programs in Pennsylvania.
On January 30, the students attended the Region 14 Leadership Conference at the Huntingdon Campus of DuBois Business College, along with their adviser Mrs. Gardner.
