Student Attends National FBLA Conference

Student Attends National FBLA Conference
Posted on 12/20/2017

This past summer, senior Matthew Kennedy had the chance to attend the 75th National FBLA Conference in Anaheim, CA. Matthew won first place at the Connecticut FBLA conference last spring, and was eligible to compete at the national level. 

During his week at the conference, Matthew met successful employees from a variety of different fields, and FBLA memb
ers from across the nation and even different regions from around the world – including China! He participated in interactive workshops where he learned presentation skills, coping in the workplace environment, and many other applicable skills. Each attendee selected their field of competition, and competed during their stay. The competitions included tests, presentations, group projects, and speaking. The week capped off with an awards ceremony where the competition and national FBLA board winners were announced. Overall, this was a fabulous opportunity for a student to dive into understanding the business world in a hands on way. Congratulations Matthew!
