Princeton FBLA Students Compete Virtually

The Princeton Middle & High School Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) students participated in the 2020 FBLA State Leadership & Competition ‘Virtual’ Conference during the week of May 4, 2020.  These students competed against almost 2,000 students from middle and high schools all across North Carolina via online test(s) and video submission of speeches.  

The competition and conference was held entirely online this year due to COVID-19 restrictions.  Normally, this conference is held at the Sheraton Koury Convention Center in Greensboro. If the conference was held there this year, all of the students mentioned below would have had the opportunity to be called up and stand on a stage in front of over 2,000 of their peer students, club advisors, and parents to receive congratulations and applause.  Although we are sad they missed out on receiving such a high level of public recognition, we are no less proud of having so many of our students succeed. These students are lead by Advisors Trudi Rast (Middle School) and Michael Butts (High School).
