Eight members of Western Wayne High School’s Future Business Leaders of America chapter (FBLA) were among the 13,000 members and advisers who traveled to Atlanta, Georgia, for the organization’s annual National Leadership Conference. The students were accompanied by their local adviser, Theresa Lubash, and former adviser, Fran Vitovsky.
During the Awards of Excellence program, the students captured two important awards: The team of Adrian Agnello and Weston Nugent placed fifth nationally in Business Ethics. Also placing fifth were the members of the Parliamentary Procedure team comprised of Alex Chapman, Rhayni Carroll, Taylor Maiocco, and Emily Romanowski.
Khloe Mistishin competed in Introduction to FBLA and Maddie Vinton competed in Introduction to Parliamentary Procedure.
While in Atlanta, the students had the opportunity to see some of the sights including the College Football Hall of Fame, the World of Coca-Cola, the Georgia Aquarium, the Mercedes-Benz Football Stadium, and an evening at the Atlanta Braves baseball game.
Besides competing, a variety of workshops were offered to develop the students’ leadership qualities.
