FBLA State Competition

On April 10th and 11th, the Brooke High School (“BHS”) Future Business Leaders of America (“FBLA”) club participated in the West Virginia FBLA State Leadership Conference in Charleston, West Virginia, where over five hundred (500) students from the State of West Virginia competed in fifty-four (54) business related events.

The BHS FBLA club was proud to have ten (10) students place in the Top 3 of their respective events, with 1st Place awards being earned by William Barney (Business Law), Michaela Mahan and Alexis Dipaolo (Business Ethics), and Josh Ferguson (Sports Entertainment & Management); 2nd Place award earned by Joshua Caswell (Impromptu Speaking); and 3rd Place awards earned by John Bober (Accounting II), Brett Brown (Entrepreneurship), Emily Matteson and Natalie Ryan (Marketing), and Caitlyn Munger (Hospitality Management). Also competing for BHS in highly competitive and represented events included Sarah Moore (Job Interview) and Gabrielle Snyder (Graphic Design).

Advisers of the BHS FBLA club, Adam Haught and Chad Haught, were extremely proud and grateful to all of their BHS student competitors, who not only put forth substantial time and effort in preparing for the conference events but spent the entire year fundraising to finance the conference. Adviser Chad Haught provided that, “The participating students are not only highly intelligent and hardworking, but they are great people, enjoyable to spend time with, and fantastic representatives of Brooke County.”
