Northern Bedford students place first in FBLA Nationals

The Northern Bedford County High School Future Business Leaders of America performed very well at the 2022 National Leadership Conference held in Chicago. The school had two teams place in the national competition.

The American Enterprise Project (AEP) team, consisting of Jacob Sensenig, Alexandrea Griffith and Matthew Hall, placed fourth. The Introduction to Business Presentation (IBP) team, consisting of Avery Aungst, Aleah Loose and Jaylyn Resh (all freshmen), were national champions topping over 100 teams from across the country in the finals.

To prepare for the competition, students work all year long on their business skills, presentations and materials, assisted by faculty advisers.

In an Altoona Mirror article, recently graduated AEP team member Alexandrea Griffith appreciated her time in FBLA and reflected on everything the organization offered: “FBLA has brought me so much joy and confidence over the years. I’ve made so many friends through FBLA and will never forget the memories we made together. Nationals was a highlight of my high school career, one that I will never forget!”

According to the FBLA website, FBLA-PBL inspires and prepares students to become community-minded business leaders in a global society through relevant career preparation and leadership experiences. Participants develop character and work-ready skills. Students must adhere to a code of ethics that includes a commitment to honesty, taking initiative, being responsible, and treating others and self with respect.
