After the opening general session at the conference, students attended leadership workshops and competed in events. For four seniors, this was their last FBLA state conference, Jessilyn C., (President), Claire H. (Secretary), Haylee F. (Treasurer) and Zachary A. (Class Representative).
"Like every year, I had a great time competing and networking! I will miss SLC and being competitive in FBLA."-Jessilyn
There were several successes and highlights of the conference. "While it was my last SLC, I enjoyed it greatly and hope that others in the future continue to help grow the chapter involvement in conferences such as this because it provides many opportunities for those who are even just thinking about business as a future career."--Haylee
Seminars about how to prepare for college, how to improve leadership, and more were offered. "With this being my last SLC, I learned many valuable skills that will be useful in life after high school"--Claire
