Fillmore Central FBLA Members Bring Home National Awards

More than 12,000 of America’s best and brightest high school students traveled to San Antonio, Texas, to attend the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) National Leadership Conference. Among them were seven students from Fillmore Central High School, their adviser Cindy Talley, and adult chaperones Valerie Poppert, Katy Nun and Cherie Domeier.
The National Leadership Conference was held June 28–July 3, where participants from across the United States, U.S. territories and international chapters enhanced their business skills, expanded their networks, and competed in more than 70 business-related competitive events. Nebraska FBLA awards students the chance to compete nationally by qualifying for one of top three positions in each event based on performance at the State Leadership Conference in April.
Fillmore Central students competed in six individual and team events. Recent graduate, Braden Myers, finished his involvement in FBLA with a seventh place finish in the Accounting II event. Fillmore Central’s other participants included the American Enterprise chapter event which was prepared and presented by Wyatt Nun, Trevor Meyer and Faith Lauber; Abigail Parten and Wyatt Nun competed in Public Speaking events; Ryan Poppert entered the Local Annual Report event; and Trevor Meyer and Ethan Reinsch competed in Accounting I and Computer Problem Solving respectively.
