On Friday, North Henderson’s FBLA chapter went to the Western Regional Conference. The conference was hosted by Franklin High School. There were chapters from many schools from the Western Region of North Carolina.

At the conference, students competed in events and attended workshops. North sent twelve students. Four of those students competed in events: Sarah Freeman competed in Public Speaking I, Adela Gutierrez competed in Word Processing, Aaron Katzenberger competed in Job Interview, and Justice Keaser competed in Computer Applications. The competitive events test students on skills needed in the business world.

Ruth Portela said: “I enjoyed being about to experience the competitive environment, it was nice to be able to support my fellow club members.”

Sarah Freeman placed 4th in Public Speaking I, Adela Gutierrez placed 1st in Word Processing, Aaron Katzenberger placed 3rd in Job Interview, and Justice Keaser placed 1st in Computer Applications. The remaining members completed a recognition test that focused on business and FBLA. Three of the members placed in the top ten: JaSha Evans placed 10th, Ira McCoy placed 7th and Belen Martinez placed 6th.
