FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CCPS FBLA Clubs Win at States

At an unusual conference held at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Calvert County Future Business Leaders of America clubs successfully competed at the state competition, beginning with in-person contests and ending virtually. Teams and individuals from Plum Point Middle, Huntingtown High, Northern High, and Patuxent High triumphed in the difficult circumstances.

 

According to a release by the Maryland State Department of Education, over 1,500 students participated in the 64th Annual State Leadership Conference, giving them the opportunity to celebrate their successes and demonstrate leadership skills. “A World of Opportunity” was the theme for this year’s conference. Students from across Maryland had the opportunity to participate in educational competitions, receive recognition for accomplishments, hear motivational speakers, network with college and business professionals, and develop leadership skills. The conference began on the same day that the State of Emergency for the COVID-19 pandemic was announced. As a result, the conference started in-person and ended through a virtual, online event.

 

Dr. Daniel D. Curry, Superintendent, said, “The skills students learn in FBLA will make them more marketable in whatever field they choose to enter. We are very proud of their success at the state level.”

 

The FBLA advisors dedicate countless hours to preparing students for the competitions. The advisors are: Athena Lewis, Northern Middle; Kathryn Weiskercher, Plum Point Middle; Nancy Wilt-Tassa and Theresa Jackson, Northern High; Teresa Grauer, Huntingtown High; and Donna Herron, Patuxent High.
