Two Washougal High School freshman, Sayre Glaser and Matthew Hickey, will be among the state finalists vying for a national title at the Future Business Leaders of American (FBLA) National Leadership Conference in Nashville, Tenn., June 29 to July 2.
“The FBLA National Awards Program recognizes and rewards excellence in a broad range of business and career-related areas,” said Kathy Sturdyvin-Scobba, WHS Teacher and FBLA advisor. “At our state leadership conferences, students competed in events testing their business knowledge and skills. These two students were top state winners and earned a chance to compete for national awards at the national leadership conference coming up.”
Glaser took third place at the Washington State competition in FBLA Principals and Procedures.
“I will compete by taking an online test about my knowledge of the FBLA organization,” Glaser explained.
To prepare for her competition, Glaser plans to spend a lot of time online at the FBLA website to learn its history, bylaws, handbook, mission, goals and rules of parliamentary procedure.
“I will really need to focus on all the details in the bylaws. And there are a lot of dates and names to remember too,” she said.
