Eight Purdy High School Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) members have qualified for the organization’s virtual State Leadership Conference and competition. “In a year marked by cancelations and a general shifting from in-person to virtual competitions and conferences it would be easy for students to lose interest and excitement in participating, but our FBLA members have remained enthusiastic and engaged, despite the challenging circumstances of the pandemic,” FBLA Adviser Kay Wright said. “I am particularly proud of the commitment and focus of our eight state qualifiers, three of whom qualified in two different competition areas.” Purdy High School’s State FBLA qualifiers compete under the direction of their chapter advisers Wright and Emily Brewer. Members include front row, from left: Areli Garcia, business law; M’kena Propps, advertising; Alli Hayes, Introduction to parliamentary procedure and agribusiness; Ruby Knight, introduction to business and Introduction to business communication. Back row, from left, Clay Henderson, Agribusiness; Bosten Goetz, Introduction to Parliamentary Procedure; Eli Hutson, introduction to information technology; Drew Graham, journalism and healthcare administration.
