Sangre recognized at FBLA national conference


MOSCA — More than 9,600 of America’s best and brightest high school students traveled to Southern California to establish their own Legacy of Leadership as they competed for the opportunity to win more than $170,000 in cash awards.

The Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) National Leadership Conference was held June 29–July 2 in Anaheim. Participants from across the United States and abroad attended this exciting conference to enhance their business skills, expand their networks, and participate in more than 70 business and business-related competitive events.

Henry White from Sangre de Cristo High School in Mosca received national recognition at the FBLA Opening Session on June 29 as the Colorado Who’s Who in FBLA representative.

“A very fitting honor for an outstanding young man who personifies the goals and objectives of FBLA," said Carol Sessums, Sangre de Cristo’s FBLA Adviser.

The award was part of a comprehensive national competitive events program sponsored by FBLA-PBL that recognizes and rewards excellence in a broad range of business and career-related areas. For many students, the competitive events are the capstone activity of their academic careers. In addition to competitions, students immersed themselves in interactive workshops, visited an information-packed exhibit hall, and heard from motivational speakers on a broad range of business topics.

Others attending from Sangre de Cristo included chapter members Danielle Solis, KayLa Moore, Iree David, Harrison Mainard; chapter adviser Carol Sessums; and parent chaperone Bonnie White.
