This past winter Western Wayne FBLA students participated in the Regional Leadership Conference for the state of Pennsylvania in a virtual format. The students performed very well, and two Western Wayne students were elected as Region 22 FBLA Officers for the 2021-2022 school year. Junior Luciano Azzato will serve as secretary for the region and Junior Morgan Coccodrilli will serve as president for the region next year. At present, Lou serves as the region treasurer, and Morgan serves as the region secretary. Lou said that he has been making the most of this unique year in education and FBLA. He explained how he has had the opportunity to meet virtually with other region office holders. Lou also enjoyed his experience in the virtual Regional Leadership Conference. He discussed how he participated in the Business Calculations event and that he is preparing to participate in the State Leadership Conference for this same event during March. As of right now, Lou is interested in the business field for a possible future career. He really enjoys math in general. He discussed what FBLA has taught him over the years. “It’s taught me a lot of important skills that I have not learned in my regular classes,” Lou explained. “I learned about interest and finance, and this has helped me to use my money the right way. Also, I have learned leadership skills such as responsibility, in taking care of others, and using my communication skills in a good positive way to get things done.” Lou aspires to attend a four-year university after graduation and is interested in Temple University, York University, and Penn State University. Junior Morgan Coccodrilli is also glad to have the chance to participate in FBLA this year. He explained how he helped to organize a meeting on a regional level by securing a speaker from the Woodloch Pines Resort to meet with the regional officers virtually. Matt Kiesendahl of Woodloch spoke to the students. “We learned how Woodloch has handled their business during the pandemic,” Morgan explained. “We learned that it is important to cater to the people and to make sure your customers are your main priority. We also learned about the importance of caring for employees and adhering to CDC guidelines.” In addition, Morgan explained how he really liked his experience in the Impromptu Speaking event at the Regional Leadership Conference. He said that students in the event were given a prompt and ten minutes to prepare to speak on it. The prompt was about how being in FBLA is like being a superhero. “I discussed how being in FBLA is like being a part of The Avengers,” Morgan explained. “You are a part of a team, and you help others.” Morgan placed first in the Impromptu Speaking event. He aspires to attend Penn State University and major in either engineering or premed. He is also thinking about doing an ROTC program. “FBLA has taught me that a good leader understands when working with others not everyone will always agree. You need to be able to find common ground to have success when working in a group,” Morgan said. The following Western Wayne students placed in the FBLA Regional Leadership Conference.
