Marian Catholic High School is proud to recognize our 20 students who competed in the 2021 Region 23 Future Business Leaders of America virtual competition in early January as representatives of the school’s FBLA Chapter. Through the guidance of the club’s Advisor Mrs. Patricia Patton and Co-Advisor Miss Marybeth Hayden, seven individuals and one team earned a 1st Place, while three individuals earned a 2nd Place in their respective business-oriented categories.
Due to the pandemic, this year’s competition was held virtually. Objective testing was done at Marian Catholic High School. Students who competed in performance events submitted pre-recorded videos or met with judges live via a Zoom call. Presentations were graded by independent judges.
We congratulate our winners who have qualified to advance to the State Leadership Conference, to be held virtually on April 12-14, 2021!
