Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) State Competition Results

The Francis Howell School District (FHSD) is honored to teach some of the brightest talent in the future of business. From April 2 – 4, Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) students from Francis Howell North (FHN) High School competed in the FBLA State Competition in Springfield, Missouri. Fourteen students competed at the state level and two students, Drew Brissette in the coding and programming category and Ben Jamison in advertising, will advance to the National FBLA-PBL Conference in Anaheim, California, from June 29 – July 2. This was more than just a competition; students had the opportunity to network with Fortune 500 companies, engage in workshops, and listen to innovative keynotes. Over 5,000 students and advisers came together for the event, with over 150 business education-related contests during the event.

“Our FBLA team continues to push the envelope with their innovative ideas in the business landscape,” said FBLA Advisor Mim Parsons-Eaton. “It has been an amazing journey simply watching their progress. I’m excited to see what our students will bring to the table in Anaheim.”

It takes students like Drew Brissette to think differently in his category, coding and programming. “My business idea was a program for businesses where they can create an organized space to view schedules, view the number of customers that would come in each day, and keep track of employees,” said Brissette. “This would, essentially, automate the workplace and increase productivity. Each employee would know their schedules and other important information, and management would have a better account for sales.”

Congratulations to all of the FHN students who have competed, and best of luck to Drew Brissette and Ben Jamison in Anaheim!
