CHICAGO— North Sanpete Middle School sent six students to Chicago to compete at the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) national convention June 29-July 2.
The students qualified for nationals by competing state level back in March and placing individually in the top two of their categories in Utah.
The week was full of competing, workshops and exploring a bit of Chicago. The team walked away with three students placing in their events and getting to walk onto the big stage.
Summer Johnson competed in Career Exploration and took ninth place. Cecily Betteridge took a sixth place award in Leadership. Megan Chambers placed third in Interpersonal Communications and will receive a cash prize.
Additionally, Cassidy Curtis competed in Marketing Mix and made it to the top 14. Cole Bother and Tatelyn Johnson competed in Critical Thinking as a team.
“These kids were the best to hang out with, and their parents were great as well,” said advisor Carey Ivory. “I had the best-behaved team that took advantage of everything the conference had to offer.”
Principal Jeff Erickson said this year’s FBLA team was amazing team and worked very hard to represent North Sanpete.
