Oconto Falls High School is fortunate to have seven students who will be advancing onto the FBLA National Leadership Conference in Anaheim, California. These seven students will be attending the National Leadership Conference (NLC) that compiles over 9,000+ students from around the nation. In order to qualify for the National Leadership Conference, it takes an immense amount of hard work and dedication. Students need to compete and place in the top 2 of their event at the Regional Leadership Conference, as well as the State Leadership Conference. Beyond the conferences, OFHS FBLA requires additional practices and even a local competition to get the students ready and more prepared for their events.
The seven students who qualified for OFHS-FBLA are Candis Dequaine, Jessica Belongia, & Elizabeth Coopman in Partnership with Business, Jacob Vervelde in Cyber Security, and Brittany Russell, Mikaela Thomson, & Liza Leja in Business Ethics. While in Anaheim, California, these 7 students will be attending various workshops and networking in order to further develop communication, teamwork, and leadership skills. They also hope to visit various attractions and tour the city.
However, in order for the students to fully enjoy this experience that they earned, they are in need of monetary help to attend the conference. Costs to attend the conference are estimated at $1500.00 per person. If you or your business is willing to help support OFHS-FBLA in competing at the National Leadership Conference, see the contact information below. All donations are tax-deductible.
