The FBLA chapter at Centralia High School arrived at the FBLA State Leadership Conference on Sunday, April 14 and ended their trip on Tuesday, April 16.
At state the members of FBLA attended both an opening session and closing session and competed in their own individual events. Some students went to SLC to assist in day-of coordination of conference activities, while others went to compete in their respective events. Junior Ben Ray did exceptionally well at state, placing 3rd in networking concepts. This placement qualified him for the National Leadership Conference in San Antonio, Texas, from June 29 to July 2.
As a chapter, the CHS FBLA was awarded Chapter of the Year: Gold Level. Also, at FBLA State, CHS principal Dr. Matt Smith was awarded Administrator of the Year.
