The G. Ray Bodley chapter of the Future Business Leaders of America continues to be among the elite in the state as several members recently took home top honors in the regional competition.
FBLA co-advisers Danielle House and Angela Ferlito said the students set the bar high during the District 9 event held Feb. 7 in Liverpool.
The state competition is in April.
Some of those elite competitors include Laura Hamdan, Angeline Kimbrell, Kim Ingersoll, Meriah Dishaw and Yusra Hanayun, who each tallied first-place. Other Fulton FBLA members who earned a spot in the Top 3 included Kari Holbrook (second place), Kim Rombough (third place), and Tattiana Pierce (third place).
In addition to competitions, the Fulton chapter of the business association has conducted fundraising for many causes.
“They’ve done fundraising for the March of Dimes, the Ronald McDonald House (and) the Golisano Children’s Hospital,” Ferlito said. “They put in a lot of time and effort to be part of FBLA.”
