Boyd wins state title for Purdy FBLA

Saturday, May 5, 2018

Purdy High School junior Colby Boyd will represent the Purdy Eagles at the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) National Leadership Conference in Baltimore, Maryland this summer, after finishing in first place at the state competition in sales presentation.

"FBLA has played a big role in my high school career," Boyd said. "I have been a member for four years, including one year of middle level FBLA, and I have developed a variety of leadership/business skills as a result. This year I competed in sales presentation, earning first place at the district contest, allowing me to earn a trip to the state competition.

"I have learned how to stand up and be a leader, as well as how to work as a team with other local and district officers. I am looking forward to Nationals and am excited to see what the future holds."

Boyd competes under the guidance of Purdy FBLA advisers Kay Wright and Ashley Brown.

He is the son of Danny and Frances Boyd and Sherrie and Dustin Schooley.
