Williams FBLA takes 5th at Section Conference

The Williams High School Future Business Leaders of America chapter competed at the Northern Section Leadership Conference last Saturday, March 2, 2013, at Pierce High School. After a long day of testing sessions, followed by an entertaining hypnotist and Minute-to-Win-it games, an awards ceremony acknowledged the members’ achievements. The chapter placed fifth out of 20 high schools in the Sweepstakes highly competitive category.

The members did extremely well with 12 students earning a bid to compete at the State Conference in April. First place winners were Simran Grewal in Public Speaking I, Jake Abel in Spreadsheet Applications, and Allison Ward in Word Processing. Second place in the FBLA Creed contest went to Chilo Carmona, while Allison Ward placed second in the Impromptu Speaking competition. Taking home third place plaques were Simran Grewal in FBLA Principles and Procedures, Courtney Carter in Public Speaking II, and the team of Jacob Abel, Estefania Aceves, Kamalpreet Kaur, Chilo Carmona, and Juan Floriano in Parliamentary Procedures. Omsher Sahota earned a fourth place award in Accounting II. Fourth and Fifth places in Computer Applications were won by Caitlyn Bidwell and Cesar Calderon respectively. Twenty four students from Williams competed at the sectional level and the chapter is very pleased with the results.

Simran Grewal and Courtney Carter, both sophomores at Williams High, ran for and won sectional offices for the 2013-2014 school year. Ms. Grewal will serve as Northern Section President / State Vice-President of the Northern Section and Ms. Carter will serve as Northern Section Public Relations Officer. They will be installed at the State Conference at the Hyatt Regency in Santa Clara April 18-21, 2013.

Several fundraisers are planned to raise the money needed to send the finalists to the State Leadership Conference, such as a pancake feed and Krispy Kreme doughnut sales. Donations to the chapter are also welcome to assist in conference expenses. Simply call Mrs. Stalley at WHS, 473-5369 ext. 328. The chapter is extremely proud of our members and our community support.
