JMS students fare well at conference
FBLA chapter competes against high schoolers
Tuesday, March 12, 2013
Students at Jemtegaard Middle School in Washougal garnered several awards at the Future Business Leaders of America 2013 Winter Business Leadership Conference recently.
It is the only middle school chapter in the region, so the wins came against high school competitors.
According to JMS advisor Susan Nesmith, the mission of the FBLA is to bring business and education together in a positive working relationship through innovative leadership and career development programs and prepare students for careers in business and business-related fields.
"This is the fourth year of FBLA at JMS and we have placed in regionals every year," Nesmith said. "I am so proud of my kids. They worked really hard to compete against high schools students."
