FBLA isn’t just one of the schools organizations, it’s a business. There has been an FBLA at our school for eight years. The program has been run by Ms. Burdick ever since she first started working here.


Future Business Leaders of America doesn’t just offer you a possible scholarship; it offers you knowledge about real world business issues today. Some kids can receive a scholarship and can even be hired just because it says on their resume that they were an active member of FBLA.

Ours schools FBLA meetings are every Wednesday at 3:45 in either Ms. Burdick’s room or E-211, and on the first of every month we dress to impress in our formal business wear so we can get the feel of what it would be like to be in an actually business meeting.

FBLA teaches you the importance of respect, manners, how to work with others, how to manage your time wisely, planning, decision-making, communication, and so much more. FBLA truly broadens your horizons because you cannot learn these essential business skills anywhere else. Ms. Burdick always makes sure to push you to the best of your ability because she knows everyone can do great if they try hard enough.

If you haven’t already, go to Ms. Burdick’s room and talk to her about FBLA especially with elections coming up soon. During April we will have our office election where you can run for book keeper, reporter, president, vice president etc.

Make sure to talk to Ms. Burdick if you have any questions comments or concerns. It’s a fun way to make friends, be involved, and learn. Make sure to wish all of the state competitor’s good luck for the states competition on the weekend of March 23.
