Our department advises for Future Business Leaders of America. This is a national organization for students interested in the field of Business and Leadership. The organization hosts leadership and competitive events throughout the year.
Its mission is to develop students' leadership, presentation, networking, service, and career skills.
Please refer to the national and California FBLA Web sites for more information. Click on the "Links" link to access those sites. I also attached (below) an informational video created by FBLA. I encourage you to watch it and be amazed at the presentation and maturity of the high school students shown in the video. Rowland High School has the same caliber of young adults motivated to succeed in this organization.
Since our inception in the 2013-2014 school year, our RHS club won numerous awards for the Regional competitions. Each year, over half of our competitors have placed in the top ten for their individual events, and they qualified for the state competition. In the 2015-2016 year, two of our state competitors placed in the top five for their events and they qualified for the national competition in Atlanta, GA. One of those students took 4th place and was awarded $200. The other placed 9th. Since then, other students also qualified for and attended the National competition.
Community Outreach Request:
Our club is seeking community support for our leadership conferences and competitions that bring together students and business professionals from across the nation. If you are interested, please send me or my co-advisor Dan Luna an e-mail.
