Thank you to our staff and administration, and to the generosity of our community members and local organizations, for your support of our students. Click HERE for a list of award winners! FUTURE BUSINESS LEADERS NEED YOUR HELP TO GET TO THE NATIONAL CONFERENCE!

Maura Campbell and Maddie Freeman qualified for the FBLA National Leadership Conference in San Antonio, Texas at the end of June. They worked very hard on their Business Plan to reach this prestigious level of competition. Due to the high travel and lodging costs associated with this trip, they have been actively fundraising to help offset the cost. This Sunday, June 2nd from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm they will be hosting a car wash at Wehrungs- including selling hot dogs and baked goods. If you can or can not attend, they will be accepting donations and it is greatly appreciated!
