Black Hawk FBLA takes part in state convention
Community Brief

SOUTH WAYNE — The Black Hawk High School Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) participated in the State Leadership Convention at the KI Convention Center in Green Bay on April 8-9. The team of Molly Edler, Peyton Downing and Allyse Troemel finished second in the American Enterprise Project defeating teams from across the state. The top four in each category qualify for the National Leadership Convention in Orlando, Fla. on June 29-July 2. The goal of this entrepreneurial project is to teach students about the American enterprise system with real-world experience while in an educational environment. This is the first time in school history that FBLA has had a student qualify for nationals.

“I am extremely proud of the work that these students put in to being named as some of the best across the state,” said Brandon Behlke, Black Hawk High School FBLA adviser. “It is quite an accomplishment and we have an opportunity to put Black Hawk’s name on the national stage at FBLA’s largest event.”

Gavin Smith participated in the computer game development and simulation category and was a finalist in the event.
