Southern Columbia's two representatives at the FBLA National Leadership Conference in Baltimore, Maryland, enjoyed a rewarding experience, that was made even more memorable with both students earning recognition for high-achievement in the organization's competitive, academic events. Chase Urban, Class of 2018, and Chloe Wegrzynowicz, Class of 2020, finished seventh and eighth in the nation, respectively, in their events. The comprehensive national competitive events program sponsored by FBLA recognizes and rewards excellence in a broad range of business and career-related areas. Chase competed in Spreadsheet Applications and Chloe in Introduction to FBLA. The Spreadsheet Applications event recognizes FBLA members who demonstrate that they have acquired skills for spreadsheet development in business. Students are tested in a variety of competencies including Creating Formulas; Functions; Generating Graphs for Analysis Purposes; Pivot Tables; Creating Macros; Filtering and Extraction of Data. Chloe's event is tailored to students who have an interest in Business Management and Administration. They are tested on a variety of administrative-type information used by the FBLA organization to conduct business, including FBLA Organization; Bylaws and Chapter Management Handbook; National Competitive Event Guidelines; National Publications; Creed and National Goals. In addition to competitions, students at the National Leadership Conference immersed themselves in interactive workshops, visited an "information-packed" exhibit hall, and heard from motivational keynote speakers on a broad range of business topics.
